Hi guys,

I saw a thread a couple of days back about a bug in firefox which is about the ‘onResize’ event in flash not firing when there is only one page opened in firefox and a new tab is opened due to which the size of the stage is reduced. I was looking into a solution and found it.

You need to style your ‘body’ tag with a top margin of 1px. Something like this:

html, body {
margin: 0px;
margin-top:1px;
padding: 0px;
overflow:hidden;
height:100%;
}

All the code above except for the top margin is something we generally do (it is provided by default if you use SWFObject). So add a top margin of 1px to it and voila!!!, the resizing works in firefox.

Somehow, I couldn’t find the old thread to put it there. So I opened up a new one. Hope it helps.

Cheers. :)

Great job. In the other thread it was observed in passing that P&K’s app which triggered the resize event correctly when the stage changed due to tab creation/removal had a one-pixel border while FT’s app did not but no one actually latched onto that as the cause of the problem.

Ah! Thanks for the link. It was night for me when the thread was opened, so I couldn’t follow. I’ll go through it now.

It was pretty easy find, I came across the soultion in the first few results in Google.

I’m using FF3 so probably the earlier versions have the same problem.
