Description Warren Togami 2006-04-21 19:22:54 UTC
http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/flash_to_flash_comm/flash_to_flash.htm
Flash-to-Flash communication is broken.  It never has worked on Linux in the
past 2 years.  Current version is 7.0.63.

Flash to Javascript
Two popups instead of just one.  Only a minor problem.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2006-10-20 22:55:36 UTC
7.0.68
WORKS: javascript to flash
PROBLEM: flash to javascript
BROKEN: flash to flash

9.0.21.55

WORKS: javascript to flash
WORKS: flash to javascript
BROKEN: flash to flash

The new version made flash to javascript behave better, but flash to flash is
still broken.

Apparently Flash to Flash doesn't work in Firefox in Windows either, but it does
work in Safari.

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-10-31 16:46:45 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2011-10-20 14:13:44 UTC
Not sure what we can do with it.
