Menu conflicts with flash in FF

In FF, the menu was covered by flash, found an old thread in this forum. Tried John's solution by adding "fixMozillaZIndex=true" in the top of data file, still have problems (see the screenshot.)

After I move mouse out a menu item, there are white squares, which covered the flash. How to fix this?

There's a newer version 5.727. Not sure if that will fix it. Let us know.

Just tried the newer version. Unfortunately, it doesn't help.

Try changing the flash object to this:

<OBJECT codeBase=,0,29,0 height=550 width=850 classid=clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000>
<PARAM NAME="movie" VALUE="/yourflashfile.swf">
<PARAM NAME="quality" VALUE="high">
<PARAM NAME="wmode" VALUE="opaque">                                                 
<embed src="/yourflashfile.swf" quality="high" wmode=transparent pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="850" height="550">

Just replace the yourflashfile.swf bit Your Flash File of course :D

If this still doesn't work, let us know and we'll see what we can do. Also, a URL will help too

I just wanted to thank Andy and bump this post.

I have been wrestling with this prob for a good couple of hours (for both IE and FF) and this is the only solutions that worked for me.

Oddly enough, other solutions found on the web recommend you set the wmode to "transparent" in BOTH the object and embed tag (which didn't work for me)

Yes, a few years ago the issue also existed where you had to do it with opaque and transparent for FF, then it didn't seem necessary for a few versions, now it seems it's back! And with this post there'll be help for others with that issue, thanks!
