Flash displaying on top of JavaScript in Netscape

Our site includes a Flash movie on the homepage, with a dropdown menu written in simple JavaScript. On IE (all versions) it works fine. However, on Netscape 6.2+ the dropdown menu displays behind the Flash movie. We fixed this problem in IE by publishing the Flash as transparent; but this doesn't seem to help in Netscape. Any answers?

you should try this:

"use the wmode=transparent parameter in embed & object, then put the flash in a deeper z layer"

just place the <PARAM NAME=wmode VALUE="transparent"> tag in the HTML code...


I am not sure if this is what you have already done...

To my knowledge, there are no work arounds for this in Netscape...


let me know if you need more info...

We have already done this; and since found out that the problem was with the Flash plugin itself. Netscape automatically downloads v6.0.23.0 if there is no plugin installed. However, the latest version of Flash (v6.0.65.0) is needed for that to work.

My apologies. I have been very pressed for time over the past month or two and totally forgot about this question.

We (temporarirl) solved the problem by creating a separate home page for non-IE users. I am no longer involved in the project as I have now changed jobs.

Thus, any answers/comments on this question will have no real relevance to me personally (btw, updating the plugin turned out not to be helpful at all). Should anyone have further theories on the problem, I will ensure that they are passed on to the relevant person.
