Hello,
I am having trouble getting a flash swf movie to display correctly in a javascript accordion dropdown (viewed in Firefox pc). It seems to work ok in IE7 PC. IE 6 is having some trouble with the widths and bumping it down...

But my main problem is figuring out why firefox doesn't want to hide the flash swf in the accordion like it will normal content like paragraphs.

here is the link: http://www.brinjac.com/test/staff.html

Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks.

Looks like you need to worry about creating valid code first if you want Firefox to display anything properly. You have 190 coding errors. See them here (http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.brinjac.com%2Ftest%2Fstaff.html).

Also, there are a number of different accordion scripts, which one are you using? Have you tried any of the others?

you also get "Accordian is not defined" in ie, probably why your script doesn't work in ff. check the spelling and that you're 100% on the script being imported, not delay-loaded or some nonsense like that. Additionally, be sure that your flash control is windowless, as this can sometimes lead to the object always staying on top of everything else even if the control has a lower z-index or is a child of an object with a lower z-index.
