Security Hurdle for Flash in IE

February 5 2008

A resolution for a “This page contains both secure and nonsecure items” Security Information dialog box that pops up in IE (6, 7) for pages that include a Flash SWF object: Security Information error in Internet Explorer.

SWFObject Getting Between a Flash Player and IE7 Conflict

January 31 2008

I had an odd bug turn up today on a project at work. Some Flash objects on a page – embedded using SWFObject 1.5 – were showing up fine in Firefox and IE6 but in IE7 were exhibiting symptoms that the javascript behind SWFObject wasn’t being applied. From the links I followed, the likely culprit was a corrupt Flash Player installation in IE7. Indeed, when I followed Adobe’s uninstall method SWFObject Support Forum – Flash Player uninstaller and then reinstalled the Flash Player in my IE7, everything seemed to be rectified.
