Preloader stops when Refresh button is hit on IE6

Hi All,

I have a Flash animation that uses a preloader with this code on frame 1


this.loaderInfo.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.PROGRESS, onProgress);
this.loaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onComplete);

function onProgress(e:ProgressEvent):void
    var loaded:Number =;
    var total:Number =;
    var pct:Number = loaded/total;
    loader_mc.scaleX = pct;
    loaded_txt.text = "Loading... " + (Math.round(pct * 100)) + "%";

function onComplete(e:Event):void

When I view the webpage with the animation on it, it preloads fine the first time. But when I hit the refresh button on IE6 it goes back to frame 1 with the bar already full and doesn’t move on. If I right click the animation and hit play then it moves onto frame 2 and plays fine.

I don’t have this issue with the refresh on Firefox. It plays it no problem.

Does anyone have any ideas why it’s not firing?
