Problems with what appears to be z-index.

It appears as if the milonc menu drops down behind other objects. In a weird way. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't (see samople photos below).
It appears to function correctly in IE 6 and older versions of firefox. But not IE 7, IE 8, and Firefox 3.5.

ie 7 and ie 8 (strange)
Drops down behind milonc left side menu sometimes.

The same page this time it does not drop down behind.

Drops down behind embeded video.

I can't see any of the first issues. I can only suggest you try changing buildAfterLoad to true and see if that might fix what is happening. It sounds as if, when it drops behind, that the menu isn't completely loaded yet. But, since I can't reproduce it, I can only guess.

As to the video issue, you need to add wmode='transparent' to your tag, i.e.
width=560 height=340 wmode='transparent'
I did that and the menu dropped over the video in IE6, 7, FF 1.5,, 3.something, Opera 9.5, Google Chrome, I couldn't test in NN7.2 nor in Safari because it won't allow me to load a page from the desktop and then call the embed file from the web, but I have to assume it will work in those also.

You also need to try upgrading your menu, you are way downlevel.
