Macromedia has acknowledged this issue in the following URL: http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_15523 However, this workaround does NOT work in Firefox. It DOES work in Internet Explorer, Netscape 6/7, Safari and others. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Insert a Flash movie into a page near a DHTML menu. 2. Set WMODE="TRANSPARENT" parameter for both the OBJECT and EMBED tags 3. Activate DHTML menu --it will appear underneath Flash movie instead of over top, but ONLY in Firefox. Expected Results: The WMODE parameter should have allowed the DHTML menu to appear over top the flash movie. If nothing else, Firefox should be designed to instead recognize the OBJECT tag and not the deprecated EMBED tag, and then allow for the movie to appear underneath DHTML menus using z-indexing or some other technique.
How about a testcase or an url showing the problem?
Firefox does recognize the object tag, here is an example on how to show a flash with the object tag: http://ln.hixie.ch/?start=1081798064&count=1 This is WFM, please reopen if you have an url or a testcase showing this issue.

Please give a reason instead of just reopening the bug.

Example URL can be found at: http://www.schaeffersresearch.com/shop/ Please note the flash movie that appears just underneath the main navigation. When you click on the arrow buttons next to the tabs along the top, they produce a DHTML menu...but those menus are appearing underneath the Flash in Firefox. But in Internet Explorer, the DHTML menus appear over top the Flash as expected. They also appear over top on Netscape versions 6 and 7. This appears to be a Firefox-only related issue. Usually the method of getting around this bug is to set the WMODE parameter to "transparent," but this has no effect in Firefox.
(In reply to comment #4) > This appears to be a Firefox-only related issue. Did you try with a nightly trunkd build as i mentioned in comment 2? Also, what flash version do you have?
Created attachment 179961 [details] Screenshot of DHTML menu appearing underneath Flash movie Attached is screenshot of the DHTML behavior as it appears underneath the Flash movie in Firefox. Usually when this occurs, one can set the WMODE parameter to "transparent" and that fixes the issue in all browsers except, it appears, in Firefox.
I think just knowing what flash version you have should be enough. Please right click the flash and see what version y ou have.
(In reply to comment #7) > I think just knowing what flash version you have should be enough. Please right > click the flash and see what version y ou have. The movie was exported to be compatible with versions 6.0 and above. The article above explains how to insert object tags in an HTML 4.0 environment, but this is an XHTML environment. Nevertheless, I tried the example with no change. I have since found a number of articles from blogs reporting the same issue with regard to Firefox and DHTML menus: http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum104/433.htm http://www.qesign.com/software/dhtml-menu-making-faq.shtml (read the section titled, "Why are the menus appearing behind Flash movies?") http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_15523
But exactly what flash version do you have installed. At macromedias website it says: * Macromedia Flash Player version 6,0,65,0 Type about:plugins in the url bar and scroll down to Flash to see what version you have.

Testing on various machines, all with 6, 0, 65,0 or above.
I have the same specifications of Flash and the same problem. An example of this bug can be found here: http://www.whats-up.uni.cc/ivolve/example/1.0/example1.html
I did quite a bit of testing on this. Doesn't work for me on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050730 Firefox/1.0.6 (Debian package 1.0.6-2) File name: libflashplayer.so Shockwave Flash 7.0 r25 a good and simple test case is http://www.communitymx.com/content/source/E5141/wmodetrans.htm Which works fine on Win XP version 1.0.4 Shockwave Flash 7.0 r19 Also got someone to test it on OSX running version 1.0.6 and it worked for him. I guess the question is, is it a firefox issue or a flash issue.

As mentioned in bug 273585, try using wmode="opaque". https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=273585#c16
Created attachment 209483 [details] screenshot of DHTML menu loading beneath flash (FF1.5/MAC) http://smartspot.com/smart_moves/ placing the mouse cursor over any of the secondary navigation items (left hand column) spawns a DHTML tool tip. in firefox 1.5 on mac this causes the flash object to disappear. in firefox 1.0x on PC, this error does not occur (i cannot presently test the issue in firefox 1.5 PC). wmode="transparent", z-index of <object> is less than z-index of <ul>. wmode="opaque" has also been tried, without success. works in firefox 1.0 PC, IE6 PC, and Safari 1.3.1 (v312.3.1). does not work in firefox 1.5 mac, or camino 2005122909 (v1.0b2). additional information: OS X: 10.3.9 flash: MAC 7,0,24,0 it should be noted that this issue does not occur in all circumstances. the test cases posted in this thread work fine, as do the menus at http://www.sfredportfolio.com/. however, the same menus (suckerfish dropdowns) were implemented at http://www.smartspot.com/playground/ (will be live by EOW) but drop down beneath the flash (see attachment). even then, if the menus are activated before the flash object has finished loading, the flash object will render underneath the menu (until the mouse is moved and the menu is reactivated).
Created attachment 221465 [details] Showing everything being fine. Screenshot showing first attachment displaying as expected based on wmode. The 2nd attachment displays as expected. Flash 8. You probably have a corrupted version of the browser or Flash, please uninstall and reinstall both. I deal with these kinds of things as part of my job, and that's usually the cause when things go funky. :-)
WFM Flash 8, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/22.214.171.124 It'll work in everything but Linux (wmode isn't supported in Linux). Please reinstall everything and try again.

That's why the drop-down list works now.
