Does Javascript Interfere with Passing Variables from Flash to PHP?

Here is my situation; I have a Flash mc (Flash 8) that passes variables to a php page, which then, in turn, uploads the variables into a MySQL database. Everything was working well until I added a javascript snippet to open a pop-up window, and then everything just went to pot! The variables didn’t get passed from the Flash movie to the php script. In a panic, I removed the javascript, but the variables still aren’t being passed.

My question is; does anyone out there lnopw whether or not javascript interferes with the passing of variables in from Flash to php? Should I be looking elsewhere for the source of my problem?

Thanks for any help. :ko:
