I am wondering if anyone knows a workaround for making input fields work when a flash site is viewed in fullscreen mode? I know it was a security feature introduced in 2007, however has anyone found a way around it?

    Nope, and hopefully they won't. I know it's a bit boring, but it's actually good that security works this way, else it would be far too easy to simulate a Vista login screen or whatever, or even a bank one, without the user having a clue what's happening.

    You can do it in AIR (see FULL_SCREEN_INTERACTIVE), if that's any use, but apart from that, you will just have to accept that because there are bad people around, it means less rights for the people!

    Sorry - I know it's not the answer you wanted!
