walter, what exact version of the Flash plugin are you using?
Probably a duplicate of bug 137189. Walter: To work around this problem, kill the Flash animation when you want to use the menu on that page (use the "zap plugins" bookmarklet from http://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/zap.html)
Actually, I think that recent flash version (like _very_ recent; 6.0 is not good enough) on Linux do support wmode. But anything older than the really recent stuff certainly does not. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 137189 ***
