Cialis online canada Main concern: better QA on Flash Player, cialis online canada make it more cross-platform/browsers and backward/forward compatible.
Cialis online canada “Flash Player is cross-platforms/browsers“, cialis online canada I think it is a successful marketing wording deeply printed in every SWF developer brain. Cialis online canada In fact, cialis online canada Flash Player does not 100% running the same in any platforms/browsers and even minor Flash Player versions. Cialis online canada
Cialis online canada AJAX developers understand their own problem and more concern users, cialis online canada they will testing their applications thoroughly between different browsers, cialis online canada but SWF developers are different, cialis online canada they trust Adobe, cialis online canada they trust Flash Player. Cialis online canada We only test in one browser+one Flash Player minor version during development. Cialis online canada It cause us into a dangerous situation when production.
Cialis online canada Here are some of the Flash Player differences:
Cialis online canada Cross-platforms/browsers
- No Mouse wheel support in MAC
Mouse wheel support since Flash Player 7 for PC, cialis online canada all scroll bar in Flex component support, cialis online canada but even Mac have Mighty Mouse or support PC USB mouse since old MAC OSX (PPC version), cialis online canada mouse wheel is still not support in Safari or Firefox for MAC in Flash Player 9.
- Mouse wheel scroll speed break user setting in OS
Mouse wheel scroll speed is configured in OS level, cialis online canada all application scroll bars will follow, cialis online canada but in SWF application, cialis online canada scroll speed is decided by own ActionScript, cialis online canada scroll bar in Flex component cannot follow the user own setting and create a bad user experience.
- Wrong local path when deal with double-byte files name in Firefox
Please reference Ticore’s Blog: Flash Player for Firefox Plugin 本機路徑 Bug (Chinese).
- IE memory leakage cause Flash Player cannot close connection with FMS
Please reference Ticore’s Blog: IE 記憶體洩漏 引起 Flash Movie 無法關閉的問題 (Chinese).
- Wmode in Firefox break textfields input
Please reference MasoBlog: 文字框中文輸入問題 (Chinese) or Patrick Mineault: Firefox wmode=transparent is completely screwy and breaks textfields.
- FileReferenceList.browse restrict file type cause a confusing for MAC user
It is not the fault of Flash Player, cialis online canada it is nature of MAC Finder, cialis online canada no extension box shows like Windows, cialis online canada so when you restrict user can upload some file types only:
import flash.net.FileReference;Without good instruction in the screen, cialis online canada user may be confused why he cannot select any files.
var allTypes = new Array();
var imageTypes = new Object();
imageTypes.description = "Images (*.jpg)";
imageTypes.extension = "*.jpg";
var fileRef:FileReference = new FileReference();

- Encoding problem for Chinese characters when passing variables to Flash in HTML embed in different browser/encoding format
It is my previous research study: 在HTML中傳送中文到Flash研究 (Chinese).
- PC Firefox run ActionScript slower when browser is not in focus
You can open the timer sample in Adobe site with Firefox, cialis online canada start the counter and minimize Firefox, cialis online canada you will find the time is slower.
- No full screen, cialis online canada wmode support yet in Linux Flash Player 9
Please keep check on Emmy Huang or Tinic Uro or Penguin.SWF.
- Stop support on Legacy OS
Flash Player has dropped support on Windows 95, cialis online canada NT and MAC OS 9 since Flash Player 8
- Flash does not support all Linux platforms
Uh, cialis online canada Thanks for the “Linux” Support
- Flash is stop running when browser is minimize in Safari
If you minimize Safari, cialis online canada the Flash running inside with stop function, cialis online canada for example, cialis online canada sound will stop playing, cialis online canada background music muted, cialis online canada web cam will stop function, cialis online canada live stream video feed will stop from the web cam (iSight).
- Flash loading data problem through SSL in IE
Flex app works with FireFox but not with IE when using SSL
Cialis online canada If you argue it is a problem Flash Player deal with browsers and what is the difference I argue that DOM+CSS deal with browsers? Overall performance are cross-platforms/browsers in AJAX/SWF but those minor flaws cause no difference between AJAX/SWF developers.
Cialis online canada Here are some of the Flash Player differences:
Cialis online canada Changes in major/minor Flash Player version
Cialis online canada You should check Ticore’s blog (Chinese), cialis online canada he wrote many cases Flash Player is not backward/forward compatible:
- Flash 8 Key.onKeyUp Bug (another one: Key.onKeyUp bug in flash8 by Mixmedia): Flash Player 7 can detect continuous key up but Flash Player 8 cannot.
- LoadVars外部資料脫逸: Data is missed in Chinese Big5 encoding in LoadVars but working properly in loadVariables

Cialis online canada Have you forgot every time Flash Player tighten its sand box? Sometimes it affects our previous work online (not local content):

- Restricted access to media data originating from RTMP servers: Flash Player 9 cannot access video data or sound spectrum data for media loaded from RTMP (Flash Media Server) sources, cialis online canada although it can display and play video and sounds loaded from these servers.
Cialis online canada Every major Flash Player upgrade introduces tons of new feature, cialis online canada but in between minor version, cialis online canada Flash Player has also improved with new features, cialis online canada bug/security fixes, cialis online canada so if you target for a major Flash version users, cialis online canada you have to be careful with what minor version they get, cialis online canada too:
