#860 closed defect (wontfix)

Firefox delays loading of components if Flash is not present

Reported by: rmoore Owned by: bradneuberg
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: Storage/Flash Version: 0.3
Keywords: flash firefox Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


If a user does not have the Flash plugin installed, when is included it blocks the loading of sub-components until a user dismisses the "you are missing plugins" box in Firefox.

I have a contentPane that has a tabContainer within it. The page will load but will not display the tabs at all. It does, however, display a message that I am missing plugins under Firefox, looking for the Flash plugin.

If I dismiss the Flash warning (click the X), the tabs then pop into view.

I'll try to create a simple example page to demonstrate, my current implementation is pretty ugly and overly-complicated.

I do not know of a way to force Firefox to continue loading components if a plugin is needed.

If you are in the situation where you have a 'kitchen sink' build, Dojo Storage and Dojo Flash will insert into the page what they need, causing your error message. I have documented on the Dojo Storage Manual page how to turn off Dojo Storage and Dojo Flash if you don't need them. Basicly you must set the djConfig variable disableFlashStorage to true:

var djConfig = {disableFlashStorage: true;}

Documented at under the heading: "I Don't Care About Dojo Storage or Dojo Flash - How Can I Turn Flash Off In My App?"

Marking as WONTFIX.
