Macromedia Flash / Mozilla problem with certain websites. Can you get them to work?

I just got Flash 6.0 working on most sites with Mozilla Firebird. The problem is certain sites still do not work.

For instance WWW-dot-JEREMYCAMP-dot-COM still says I need to install Flash 5.0 or later.

Also here is a site with a movie that worked for me in Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape until I installed Flash for Firebird. Now it doesn't wrok on any browsers accept my winders machine. MYWEB-dot-CABLEONE-dot-NET/gryphon/honda.html

Any ideas

Oh yeah, Hi!! This is my first post here.

PS - Stinkin thing won't let me post URL's because I don't have 5 posts. Replace the "-dot-" with a period please.

It has to be on the website side in their scripting for Flash, etc as I got the same error page, telling me to upgrade. Just about all other sites work with Flash that I go to.

Not sure about your other page you mentioned. I've seen that commercial for the Honda on other sites using Firebird and the Flash 6 plugin, etc.

Has nothing to do with's the scripts they use to check whether or not you have Flash installed. They generally don't work properly unless you're using Netscape or IE on Windows.

Personally i've always thought javascript Flash checkers were a stupid idea from the start....why not just use Flash to check for Flash? If all you see is an html page, you don't have flash. If you have it, then away you go.
