Problems with loading images on firefox & one other problem

i’m helping my friend with his website. he’s an artist and he wants to put his artwork in a form like

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=‘Lucida Grande’]

[FONT=Arial]see the problem is, when i load the link on ie6 (haven’t tried in ie7 yet) and safari, it loads beautifully. in firefox, it doesn’t load at all.

i was wondering what i should do.

& the other problem, if you see the page, when i use the slider, the image zooms with respect to the top left and keeping that as the origin.
is there a way to make the cursor in the middle be the origin of the image?

the attachment with this post has the fla file and the xml file that i’m using. thanks a lot in advance guys!
