Overlapping issue flash/lightbox++ - mac firefox

I'm using a flash movie to trigger a lightbox on the following site:
http://davegrant.info/sascha/

Originally, when triggered the lightbox would disable the flash, hiding it. I changed this setting in the lightbox++.js to not hide the flash and this seems to be working fine in all browsers save mac firefox.
Safari displays the page correctly, however firefox overlaps the lightbox with the flash movies below.

Is there any way I can resolve this?

Hmm I've had a similar problem and trying to remember how I solved it.

I'm sure it was a Z-Depth issue, have you tried applying a z-depth to the lightbox which is very high, and try applying a z-depth to the flash movie that is very low. you will need to ensure flash movie is set to windowmode:transparent.

Which I think you have done.

Try the Z-Depth and see if it works.

Can I ask why you are using Flash for those buttons? If it's not needed, could you not try standard Jpg buttons?

The flash buttons are just a temporary inclusion, i'm planning on expanding the gallery into a more animated, data-driven affair, hence flash. The banner is more the issue at present.
I figured that it was the z-index as well but have tried tweaking it to no avail.

I understand this is an issue with lightbox scripts which is why the hideFlash parameter is set to false by default. It's just bewildering me as to why every other browser config plays well except mac FF?

perhaps it's the flash plugin for that version of Mac FF have you tried the latest version?

Would it be possible to hide the flash movie when it appears, but behind the flash movie is a jpeg of the banner? Given that the animation will have stopped by the time people interact with it
