Topic: Adobe Flash Player Security

Hi, I've just upgraded to the latest Simpleviewer Pro.  It's awesome, but I've discovered a glitch.  I cannot view my galleries from my hard drive without getting a pop-up from Adobe Flash Player Security.

"Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation. The following local application on your computer or network: D:\Websites\BFTB\toys\003\af\023\svcore\swf\simpleviewer.swf is trying to communicate with this Internet-enabled location: www.bloodforthebaron.com To let this application communicate with the Internet, click Settings. You must restart the application after changing your settings."

I've clicked settings and added my URL to the 'Local Storage Settings by Site...' button with 'allow' selected but it makes no difference, I get the pop-up every time I view a simpleviewer gallery offline and each time I refresh the page.

Please could someone advise?  I did have a good hunt for a solution as I am sure I'm missing something obvious, but I've run out of ideas.  I am running Flash version 11.2.202.235 on Mozilla Firefox.  I've just checked using IE and I have to allow blocked content each time.

Thanks, Jim.

Re: Adobe Flash Player Security

This is due to you using an absolute URL for your backgroundURL.
Change this to a relative URL instead and SimpleViewer will not have to try to access the internet to fetch the background image when you view your galleries locally.
The URL will be relative to the HTML page into which the gallery is embedded.
For example, in your http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/toys/00 … allery.xml page, change:

backgroundURL="http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/links/background.png"

... to:

backgroundURL="../../../../links/background.png"
