Working around new IE Browser idiosyncracy

I've noticed on some sites I visit, and now with a site I'm developing for a client, that recent IE updates requiring a user to click on an .swf before being able to access the controls of that .swf (if controls exist).

Is there a way to get around this new idiosyncracy (which must be part of a new security protocol), by simply setting the focus to the layer in which the .swf resides, and if so, how would I do this?

If setting the focus is not the answer, is there another answer other than instructing users that they may have to click on the .swf's twice in order to activate the controls?

The .swfs, by the way, are Adobe (Macromedia) Captivate output files running users through online instruction.

Thanks!

Simple enough.

You can't.   At least, you can't until microsoft decides to get off there collective rich arses and fix the browser.   There was some kind of error in one of their security updates that does his now.

You could always tell your clients to use a different browser.....

Oooof.

How about that. Who would have thought that Microsoft would do such a thing? Pardon me while I go out now to pay for their soon to be unveiled security solution that addresses the swiss chees operating system.

Thanks for the insight though.

Oh now, if you think the masses / lemmings will move to anything outside of MS, you're smoking something. Whatever it is, make sure to bring enough for the rest of the class.

Have a nice day!
