i'm having an issue with Firefox 1.0.1. I've created a layered flash menu and placed it on the top of my page as a nav bar. When u roll over the menu, it unfolds the submenus. Behind the submenus i have a block with html links. In IE everything works fine, i mean, althouth the existance of the layered flash menu, it is possible to click on the html links. That doesn't happen in firefox.. Firefox sees the whole layered flash menu as an object and although i can see my html links, i cannot click them (because the flash "invisible" layer covers them; somehow the website focuses on the invisible layer). here is my code for the flash menu:
No i don't think there's any other way. In a lot of browsers, your flash gets rendered as a rectangle which blanks out everything behind it.
It depends on what it's supposed to be overlapping. If it's only overlapping graphic page elements, you can actually place those into your flash movie and make it look like the flash is transparent when it actually isn't. But when it's overlapping actual content, then there's no way you can fix it.
I don't recommend wmode anyway because it's really heavy on the processor cycles and it can slow down old computers to a snail's pace.
