menu behind flash (flowplayer)... in certain browsers

Hi all,

Happy New Year.

Previously, I had a flash object placed using the "swfobject.js" script, which I think I found here at Milonic. It always behaved perfectly; the menu always in front of the flash movie:

Now I'm using flowplayer, and I thought all was well, it works with my FireFox 3.6.13, and in IE 8. But then I wen to my gramp's house, he's got FireFox 3.5.13, and behold, the menu is behind the movie:

I've found the menu is also behind the movie in Google Chrome.

Keep in mind the movie need to be playing... the original splash image is a JPEG and has no problems.

I've tried "fixMozillaZIndex=true;" and I'm running the latest menu (5.831).

I do have my flowplayer movies placed inside a div.

Any ideas?

I think I may have solved it myself. Set the wmode to "opaque" in flowplayer.

flowplayer("player", "", {

flowplayer("player", {src: "", wmode: 'opaque'}, {
