I made a drop down menu in flash for my website. As some part of the menu goes "on top" of the html i had to insert the flash movie in a div tag and set the wmode property of the flash object to "transparent" and the div's z-index to make it the highest layer.
So far everything is ok.
The problem cames with some pages of my site that have another div tag (with overflow set to "auto") in the html part. The issue is that part of this div gets "intersected" with the flash div and although the html div has a smaller z-index value than the flash one, part of the drop down menu is not accessible.
I mean, it's like the html div had a greater z-index value but that's not the case.
This issue only happens in Firefox.


Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sure someone is going to ask you for a URL to the page you're having problems with or to attach your page in a zip package including images so it will look like what you see when in a local browser/html editor.

Ok. The address is http://www.aeromont.com.uy/flashmenu/ .
The drop down menu is under the "Servicios" option. You'll see that the last item of the menu is not accessible.
My apologies for sending the spanish version of the site, the english version does not have the flash menu yet.

No hay de que. LOL I'm not sure how to correct this as I get a Server not found error right now. Possibly check your image map coordinates for your link is just a guess.

I found kinda solution to my problem. i decided to add a <br> tag before the start of the layer with the overflow property. This is not the best solution because i had to fix some other things caused by the <br>, but it's the only one i could think of.
Thanks.

Sorry I didn't get back to you in time. Doing a 600+ page site for a sight-impaired person using Jaws. If you are satisfied with your solution then I'll consider this topic resolved. Please, again, accept my apologies for not providing more help in a timely manner.
