Build ID: 2001112508 on Win2k, Flash 5.0r41. Steps to reproduce bug: 1. Load URL http://www.intel.fr/eBusiness/products/desktop/ 2. Mouse over left menus (example: Inscription) 3. See DHTML menu going behind the Flash content. Expected results: DHTML should be over Flash content, it works with IE6 on Win2k, Netscape 4.76 (using same Flash plug-in, 5.0r41). Don't know whether to report this bug in Layout or Plug-ins though.
Also happen on Linux with latest nightly build (000000000 ? weird build ID btw :) + Flash 5.0r47. OS -> All

On IE you're replacing the swf with an image or non-flash content. But your function for swapping out the content doesn't work for Mozilla. Expected Results should actually be flash is replaced by image in IE6 and NS 4.76. Check to make sure you're accessing the correct DOM properties for Mozilla. BTW Flash will(should) always be on top of DHTML
Looks like the script is hiding the parent DIV but the containing plugin isn't being hidden.
URL is now a 404, the bug still remains however but building a testcase for this (DHTML+Flash) is out of my possibilities. :(
I don't think this is a mozilla bug as it's a known restriction of DHTML, being that layers cannot be over flash... Happens in all other browsers... also form objects and other embeded objects normally take priority (z-index)
Marking INVALID based on the previous comment.

As I first mentioned in my bug report, this bug doesn't happen with IE6 nor Netscape 4.76, I just re-verified with following URL: http://www.intel.fr/eBusiness/index.htm
You will find information here: http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/communicator/dynhtml/index.htm regarding the fact the plugins, applets and forms take the highest most priority in the window... and if you keep looking you'll see that recently Communicator has introduced window-less plugins allowing layers to be on top of some plugins (Which is terrific since it is not backwards compatible)... Finally, if you really, really look at the page, you'll notice that the SWF is replace by an image when you rollover the left nav (IE 6) So the layer isn't truly over flash, it's over an image.
Verified on IE6 and NS 4.76 as poor programming, not a mozilla bug. Checked IE 6 and NS4.76 pc, site uses DHTML to replace the swf with an image when you mouseover the left nav (displaying the layer). It appears they didn't take the time to test this in Mozilla.

The URL´s in this bug don´t show the behaviour, so here is a new one: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseball/mlb/ 'MLB' is a flash menu, and hides part of the menus from above, 'NFL' ... 'Scores' http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/more/ 'More Sports' is a gif, overlapped by the menues from above, hover over 'NFL' ... 'Scores' This is from Bug 218187 Main page dropdown menu is correct but subsection baseball, nfl etc dropdown menu is mangled due to flash testcase 33 kb zipped http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=130928&action=view testcase MLB, needs flash, is working offline: unzip into a directory, start MLB.html feel free to dupe, if the bug fits this bugs description. Is sportsillustrated.cnn.com an umimportant minor website, or should it be 'Tech Evangelized' ? I´m not seeing this bug in Netscape 4.79, as there are no expanding menus on the subpage, menus are shown only http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com I´m also seeing this bug using Opera 7.23 Tested on Win98, Win98SE, starting with Mozilla 1.3, up to now, using Flash 7.0 r19

Is this 'bug' responsible for the menu-effect on this page http://tw.giga-byte.com/ ? (tested with Firefox 0.8)
(In reply to comment #20) > Is this 'bug' responsible for the menu-effect on this page > http://tw.giga-byte.com/ ? (tested with Firefox 0.8) Yes, they should probably upgrade to CoolMenus v4: http://tw.giga-byte.com/Scripts/coolmenus3.js

Summary: Flash overlapping DHTML menus → Flash overlapping DHTML menus, due to missing wmode="transparent"

I still have this problem with flash 9 and FFx 220.127.116.11 (gentoo build). I keep seeing in these bugs that people need to include wmode="transparent", but http://tw.giga-byte.com has that, and so does http://canonusa.com Neither of them are working.
well, even with ffx 3rc2 (both linux & windows), flash still overlapping dhtml menus, eg: http://www.gettyimages.com and i found many bugs was reported, but none of them resolved:(
I think this bug has been fixed quite a long time ago. Take a look at http://www.nvidia.com. Menus are on top above the flash animation, and they're even transparent. It used to work bad, but right now it works fine. I am using Firefox 3.5b4 from Fedora 11 (Linux).
On Linux you can layer an iframe in front of a Flash without wmode=transparent but on Windows you cannot
