    Flash overlapping drop down menus

    Our horizontal DHTML drop down menu drops behind our Flash sub-header that sits immediatly below. The problem is fixed in IE using "wmode"..."transparent"... but firefox is not cooperating.

    Any suggestions? I won't do the menu in flash as I need the menu viewable by web spiders... also setting a high z-index doesn't seem to work either. I'm assuming the flash export automatically sets it's z-index on the fly as being +1 the highest z-index on the page. Perhpaes there is a different way to export the flash?

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

    wmode should work on FF also, try this:
    PHP Code:
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="100" height="100">
    <
    param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <
    param name="movie" value="flash.swf" />
    <
    param name="quality" value="high" />
    <
    embed src="flash.swf" quality="high" wmode="opaque" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100" height="100"></embed
    Also make sure u got latest version of FF!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Quick question though...

    how would ..."wmode"... "opaque" make it so it didn't drop behind the flash? I thought "transparent" made it so that it didn't matter because it was transparent. IE only understands this. Yeah FF is fully updated.

    Talking May be there is a bug in the tags above, right code is here:-

    Code:
    	<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <th scope="col">
    	<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="100%" height="100%">
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <param name="movie" value="file.swf" />
    <param name=[COLOR="RoyalBlue"]"quality"[/COLOR] value="high" /></object>
    <embed src="file.swf" quality="high" wmode="opaque" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="550" height="200"></embed>
    	&nbsp;</th>
      </tr>
    </table>
    Enjoy
