There is a flash movie published with window mode equal to transparent.  The
flash movie is in a div tag with z-index equal to 2.  There is html below in an
iframe tag with z-index equal to 1.  The movie is the default width and height
for flash 550 by 400.  My flash movie only contains a small box in the center of
the movie.  The box is clickable.  In Internet Explorer the functionality of the
clickable box works great.  You click the box and another green/blue box
appears.  In Mozilla there are two problems. 

1.  The box is barely clickable.  I don't know how else to put it.  As you mouse
over the box in the flash movie you get a flickering between the arrow cursor
and the hand cursor.  It should just be a solid hand cursor like when you mouse
over a link on an html page.  If you just click and click over the box you might
get it to work, but it doesn't work well.

2.  The transparency is rendered fine in both ie and mozilla but the difference
is that mozilla seems to block out the html links/scroll bars etc below any
portion of the flash movie.  The movie is 550 by 400 and even though the
transparency is rendered correctly you can click on anything below that 550 by
400 area.  In ie the only area you can click through to the html is in the box
area.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.goto www.wolffebrothers.com/transparency.html with mozilla and try to click on
the red box or the links of html that are close to the box.  550 by 400 area
around the box.
2.Do the same with ie
3.

Actual Results:  
No clickable in the areas of concern

Expected Results:  
look at how IE deals with it.

I have not found a workaround with exhaustive searching

I´m getting an error on the JavaScript-console

Error: document.myFrame has no properties
Source File: -moz-evil:lying-event-listener
Line: 0


that´s caused by:
<body onload="document.myFrame.focus();">
<iframe name="myFrame" src="http://www.boiledpotatoes.org/catalog/"
class="myContent"></iframe>

why not use onload on the iframe?

fwiw the incorrect url should be fixed in a current version of mozilla. sorry 
about that.
This looks a bit similar to bug 247280, where the event position seems to be
'off' by 20px.
