Flash is breaking my site on FF for PC

    Hi everyone!

    okay, here’s the deal. I just launched a small site for a friend over at and it’s broken on FF(3.5.7) for PC.

    So, I went straight to the code and didn’t know where to start. I found out after trying to validate the XHTML that the flash(vimeo videos) were causing the issues.

    I get this message regarding the "SRC" attribute in an embed tag.

    "Line 31, Column 330: Attribute "src" exists, but can not be used for this element."

    "this element" is referring to the embed tag.

    I’m really quick stumped and don’t know what to do. As soon as I remove the flash embeds and replace them with images, the slider works.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I found out what was wrong.

    I added wmode="transparent" to the embed tag. It works fine now.
