if(window.event && window.event.keyCode == 114)
{ // Capture and remap F5
window.event.keyCode = 505;
if(window.event && window.event.keyCode == 505)
{ // New action for F5
//alert('F3 key was pressed');
return false;
// Must return false or the browser will refresh anyway

How to use adobe flashplayer in mozilla firefox?

You don't have to do anything, after installing the Flash player(Non-IE) for your respective Browsers add-on/plug-in to the mozilla firefox. The Flash player will automatically play/open any flash or swf files video ( eg. sites like "You Tube", etc...)linked to the webpage using your Browsers.

There are 2 versions Flash Players ie Flash Player for IE(Internet Explorer) & Flash Player for Non-IE (Firefox, etc...). You can download & install the Flash Players from the link.

Hope it helps.

how to create your own .swf video and post up on internet.

SWF info:

The Flash File Format (SWF) was designed as a very efficient delivery format that was initially designed to deliver vector graphics and animation over the Internet. It was designed to meet the following goals:

On-screen Display—The format is primarily intended for on-screen display and so it supports anti-aliasing, fast rendering to a bitmap of any color format, animation and interactive buttons.

Extensibility—The format is a tagged format, so the format can be evolved with new features while maintaining backward compatibility with older players.

Network Delivery—The files can be delivered over a network with limited and unpredictable bandwidth. The files are compressed to be small and support incremental rendering through streaming. SWF is a binary format and is not human readable like HTML. Macromedia Flash (SWF) uses techniques such as bit-packing and structures with optional fields, to minimize file size.

Simplicity—The format is simple so that the player is small and easily ported. Also, the player depends upon only a very limited set of operating system functionality.

File Independence—Files can be displayed without any dependence on external resources such as fonts.

Scalability—Different computers have different monitor resolutions and bit depths. Files work well on limited hardware, while taking advantage of more expensive hardware when it is available.

Speed—The files are designed to be rendered at a high quality very quickly.

Don't want to do any code work?

Can not install flash player

You might want to re-enable a browser add-on if you disabled an add-on but want to go to a site that requires it, or if disabling the add-on caused general display problems with webpages or Internet Explorer.    To re-enable an add-on
1.     Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2.     Click the Tools button, click Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.
3.     In the Show list, click Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer to display all add-ons.
4.     Click the add-on you want to enable, and then click Enable.
5.     Repeat step 4 for every add-on you want to enable. When you are finished, click OK.

I can't open videos requiring flash player eventhough i've already installed it

If you have Adobe flash player on your computer and you get the message on youtube to download the latest version of Adobe or turn on your Java in place of the video you want to watch, then look at your toolbar at the top of the screen and if there is a pink bar that says the website wants to run an Add On for Adobe flashplayer then click on it and select Allow Add On or Blocked content and the video should run fine.

Swf downloaders...

If you can view it with internet explorer, then it was downloaded to your temporary internet explorer files (cache). You can find the directory where the temporary files are stored here: C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR-USERNAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files or On Internet Explorer 7.0 click on: tools->internet options: On Browsing History click on Settings and then View files. Search for the file in question and then copy it to your desktop or any other folder. Let me know if that solved your problem, Daniel
