Oh there's a drop down menu. The drop down menus are shown
behind the Flash animation, making it impossible to use the menus.

I think this problem only occurs on Linux.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to
2. make sure the flash animation runs
3. hover your mouse over the menus so they pop out.

Actual Results:  
Menus are covered by flash animation

Expected Results:  
Menus should overlap the stupid flash animation.
Please always include the used plugin anad version if you report a problem
releated to a plugin (in this case flash).
Use "about:plugins" (as URl) to get the flash version.

I noted the same bug years ago, in "normal" Mozilla (not Firefox), but I don't
remember if it ever got fixed.

I to am having this same issue as a web designer I noticed that the flash works
and looks great in windows (firefox) however under linux it seems to ignore the
wmode="transparent" in the embed tag... 
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Same here Firefox 1.0.7 with Flash 7.0 r25 under Linux.
I can assume that site works ok under Windows. Can anybody test this?
Probably releated to bug #297066.
