I'm working in Illustrator CS4, and when I save from EPS to SVG I get these messages:

  • Foreign artworks are expanded (I see this error when I save to SVG)

  • clipping will be lost on roundtrip (And I see this one when I open the SVG I saved)

This SVG opens fine in illustrator, but some of its parts disappear in Firefox.

What does this clip path mean and how can I fix it?

    What's the artwork made of? Blends? Gradients? Raster elements? Glows? Shadows?

It looks like you use clipping masks. Try to cutoff all clipping masks and all heavy effects.
