     Just to be sure, do you know for certain that the Flash portions
of the site are really Flash and not Shockwave? AFAIK Shockwave is
still unavailable for Firefox under Linux. I've run into this problem
on the Rosetta Stone site and on others. I have had limited success
running it on a Windows version of Firefox running under Wine (with
the Shockwave plugin installed of course :)
     It's confusing to me because Macromedia / Adobe still sometimes
refer to Flash as "Shockwave Flash".
