In the previous version of firefox, the transparent handling for flash showed no problems, default flash components like ComboBox and showing flash fullscreen worked.

A example of the combo problem is show here:

If your remove the wmode or set it to window it works correct again, see:

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the page 
Actual Results:  
The page with the flash is show, but the combobox component in the flash are missing when the wmode is set to transparent.

Expected Results:  
Show the combobox in flash in wmode transparent, and if chosen the flash fullscreen mode should be supported in wmode transparent

this worked properly in the previous version of firefox
Can you point out what button exactly doesn't work?

the flash is supposed to show 3 comboboxes on the right upper corner of the flash app. The comboboxes show properly if wmode=window but the don't show if wmode=transparent. You can see the difference using the two links in the original post of this bug.

The problem with fullscreen in wmode transparentcan be seen at: (don't forget to press the button fullscreen)

here is the same flash but with wmode at window wich does work:
Tested with Firefox 3.5 on Windows Vista, Shockwave Flash Version: :

On this address http://www.orakels.org/php/?m=wo_tarot_online I see three blue selectboxes "Het levenskruis" etc. but no fullscreen button.
On this address http://www.orakels.com/php/?m=wo_tonline exactly the same.

On this address http://www.orakels.org/php/?m=wo_chillout_zone I see no blue dropdown menus but I do see a (working) fullscreen button.
And the same goes for http://www.orakels.com/php/?m=wo_chillout .

Perhaps posting 2 different bugs is confusing. I've rebuild my site to show the difference for the blue dropdown menu's

the link below shows the blue dropdown menus:

the link below fails to show the blue dropdown menus:

I've tested this on 2 different computers both using firefox 3.5 on Windows XP SP3 and the bug is repeatable (at least here)

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; nl; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090624 Firefox/3.5

Nope; http://www.orakels.org/php/?m=wo_tarot_online&wmode=transparent is showing the selectboxes.

You have already the latest Flash version?
Please also try safe-mode to exclude extension problems:
Or a new profile:
If the problem persists, try reinstalling Firefox in a different folder.

installing flashplayer v10 corrected the problem, thanx for your patience and the solution (should have tried that first, silly me *shame shame*)

Kind regards, Gideon
