Flash plugin display is too small

Is there anyway to force the flash plugin to display the animations in a larger format? Perhaps this is a problem with regular firefox also but I am only using PFF so I thought it best to ask here. I use some flash animations to show my class information and I would like to do it using PFF but it displays animations at too small a resolution even though I am projecting the image onto a large screen. I also would like to get some colleagues to switch to PFF but I think the flash glitch would be a deal killer. Here's a site so see what I am talking about: http://addictinggames.com/logicproblems.html. View the site in PFF and then in Internet Explorer and you should see a big difference. At least on my machine that is the case.

I tried looking at the Flash Player settings but didn't find anything useful and telling PFF not too resize images also did not help.

Thanks in advance.

It's the way you code the page

Firefox, like all other web browsers, resizes the Flash object based on the way it is embedded in the page. It isn't a setting in Firefox or of Flash. If you open an SWF directly in FF, it'll fill the browser window, so it's nothing to do with the flash object:

My guess is that you coded the page to IE. If you code to standards first and then add in the hacks for IE's buggy rendering engine, you'll be much better off. It's the HTML in that page that is causing your issue. It's nothing to do with Portable Firefox.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

It's not my website. I just want to use the games on the site to discuss problem solving. So I guess based on what you're saying there's nothing I can do about it.

Nope

The site was badly coded and is not fully compatible with non-Internet Explorer browsers.

Thanks for the help but I

Thanks for the help but I tried that and it didn't work. I don't know much about MM Flash so maybe I'm missing something. I'm working on a windows 2000 system.
