Known Issues

Fixed Issues
  • MovieClip.currentLabel behavior inconsistent with MovieClip.currentLabels. Returns null, but correct label name is expected. (169127)
  • Setting stage.mouseChildren or stage.tabChildren to false does not disable mouse interaction for the stage's children. (175090)
  • Method closures do not work as keys in a Dictionary. (177261)
  • Pixel-snapped FlashType has incorrect spacing when scaled as compared to changing the point size of the font. (174530)
  • Non-integer letter-spacing values in CSS corrupts text field rendering. Floating point values for letter-spacing in CSS are now supported. Previously, non-integer values were not handled correctly and text would not draw as expected. (182482)
  • When the hitTestState of a SimpleButton is the same as any of the visible states, moving the SimpleButton instance will result in screen artifacts. Workaround: use a different shape instance for the hitTestState. (172822)
  • When calling out to ExternalInteface for FSCommand various timer related events, such as "enter frame," no longer trigger. (178286)
  • Pixel-based grid fitting does not work for Flash Player for PowerPC or Intel-based Macintosh computers in Rosetta mode. Pixel-based grid fitting works in native mode on Intel-based Macs. Designers and developers that are using pixel-based grid fitting for Flash Type should use native mode on Intel-based Macs or the PowerPC version if developing and viewing content on a PowerPC system. (180560)
  • Crash in ActiveX control related to onSoundCompletion handling. (177131)
  • When opening 2 window instances of IE 7 with 2 tabs each, crash will occur with binary socket connection. (186530)
  • Clicking play/pause button in a Google video opens another IE window and new window crashes. (184274)
  • Player crashes when parent MovieClip destroyed using a onSetFocus event handler. (187080)
  • Safari dropping frames and playing video poorly in full-screen mode (PPC & Mactel). (187776)
  • Dynamic TextField prints as a solid box when using embedded fonts and set for anti-alias for readability. (187087)
  • Setting selectable=false on a TextField doesn't prevent keyboard selection. (186835)
  • RegExp .index property isn't double byte aware. (186337)
  • Artifacts when initially playing + video stream freeze when selecting second video clip. (186435)
