If you can get the URL of the login SWF it might be possible to fix this, but it won't be easy to work out what the problem is.

I wouldn't have an account with a bank that uses Flash to login!

Just started using Gnash on my Ubuntu system in response to latest Adobe Flash vulnerability (June 4, 2010). So far so good with everything I've tried so far, including YouTube. The lone exception is a banking website:

Once the access ID is typed in from this site, the screen goes into an endless loop with a message "Processing Login...". This page continually reloads and gives the same message, until I shut the tab or close the browser (if it's the only tab running). I did remove Gnash, install Adobe Flash, and confirm I can login with Adobe's plugin. When Adobe Flash is installed, I see that securebankcentral.com has a Flash cookie saved to my computer, and the Firefox plugin icon in the lower right corner of browser tells me the site is using Flash.

I've since flushed all Flash cookies, removed Adobe's plugin, and reinstalled Gnash. On the occasion I need to access this site, I can either temporarily install Adobe's plugin or access the site from my Win7 install.

Not sure if this is considered a "bug" or not, but thought I should report here. I'm happy to try any suggestions by developers or help in any way I can.

Using version 0.8.7 in Ubuntu 10.04 repos.
