Topic: Firefox in Linux Can't view gallery

I just installed Ubuntu and when I tried to view my gallery in Fire Fox it is just a blank scree except for the "click here to return to home page".

My wife is running in windows vista, Fire Fox, but her's is working just fine. Another friend from Michigan says he can't see it and he is using Firefox. Called my grand mother in texas and asked her is she could view it in firefox and she says it is working just fine. So im a bit confused as to 2 out of 4 can't view.

I am running the site off my home server computer. any ideas?

Site here

I'm running Linux and your gallery is running fine, are you sure you have installed flash?

Ya, Did a sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree, flash works fine for YouTube but still not working for the gallery. I think it has something to do with the Java script being outdated.

If you navigate directly to the swf does it work?

Yes sir,

It works when your navigate directly to .swf file. So what should I do to ensure linux can view it?

Looking at your site I'm seeing that you have some tags in the head of your HTML that do not belong there. You need to move the li and a tags to the body of your HTML, and then clear your browser's cache. If that does not fix the problem, does the example on the SimpleViewer site work for you?
