firebug console.log with flash 9/10 swf9/swf10 does not work

I had trouble with debugging a piece of flash with firebug when I moved from flash 8 to flash 9. Basically the firebug console wouldn’t pick up any of the trace messages. There is a work-around for this problem here. Basically, you may need to call this little bit of javascript before your embedded flash object to make sure firebug wakes up:

<script>
var triggerFirebugConsole = window.console;
</script>
