Really? Okay. Checking... I am sorry. Both you and Aaron Konstam are posting
similar but different problems under the same subject line. That is called
thread highjacking but we won't go into that now. It can confuse things can it
not?

I did not know that you have a site. Is that your family? Your wife and child?
Nice pictures.

I guess that I was unclear. I meant your site - the Citibank site because I
had thought it was your that did post it.

I do not have this happen to me at all. It works on my son's Mac with Firefox
2.0.0.1. It works for me with Windows XP PRO and the same Firefox. And it
works with Fedora Linux (Rawhide) and Firefox 2.0.0.1. All with FLASH 9 installed.

The only notice I get is that they want FLASH installed and all that gives you
is the advertisements to read.

The site appears to use FRAMES. That could be your problem. What are you using
browser and other information you might offer would be helpful?

I am not trying to argue with you about this. I am trying to help you. You
sound frustrated but if you don't want my help please just say so and I will
be more that happy to stop trying.
