There is a possible bug when using Firefox 3.0.1 under Rails 2.0.2
with embedding objects.
I discovered after upgrading to Firefox 3.0.1, embedded flash movies
will not display properly under Rails. The flash movies display
cropped thus not displaying the right and bottom sides of the movies.
By increasing the embedded object’s width and height the flash movies
will display properly within Firefox 3.0.1, but this will cause other
problems with other browsers.
After stripping away all unneeded code, it was discovered that Firefox
3.0.1 under Rails REDUCES the dimensions of an embedded object’s width
and height (all approximately 91% of original size).
For example, an object embedded at 400x400 will be reduced to 366x366,
600x600 reduced to 548x548, 200x200 reduced to 184x184 (all
approximately 91% of original size).
The test code and some screen shots compating various browsers is
PLEASE NOTE: The same embedded Flash objects display properly when
using html and Firefox 3.0.1 (see screen shot Firefox 3.0.1 html). In
other words, the problem only occurs with Firefox 3.0.1 under Rails.
Firefox3.0.1/html, MSIE/Rails, Opera/Rails and Safari/Rails work
properly using the same embedded object.
Does anyone else get the same results or is this just my setup?
