Ok so i have a flash video in my website, and i do not want the stage to show, so i use the property wmode="transparent" in the embed tag. However, when I do this, my buttons become messed up, and i have to click in a different spot then where the hit area for the button is.
How can I fix this?

Hmm, interesting - I've never heard of wmode affecting things like this.

Does the problem go away if you remove the wmode attribute? Does this only happen in Firefox?

The problem does go away when wmode is not one of the attributes, and I have really only checked this problem on FireFox, the problem does not arise in IE. I fixed this problem by creating two different embeds, and depending on what browser the user is using, it will display one of the videos. If its firefox, it uses a video where the click area for the button is changed so that when you click on something, it will work. It works, but i would like a better solution.
