Some Pages with Flash, some not


Hi,
I installed the Macromedia Flash plugin for Mozilla and on some pages it works perfect!
But on others, like www.englishtown.com I just see the picture but it doesn't start
What can I do?

Even if your browser identifies as IE, it does not have all the plug-ins and bugs and loopholes as in IE. So it won't work in your browser .

I have come across some weirdness in the linux flashplayer plugin. For example the page http://www.mironov.net/pingu/pingu3.swf doesn't work very well in opera under linux (it works but there's no text). Opera under windows, though plays it without a problem.

Edit: Seems the site is currently down so you can't check it. It's a good time waster, though.
