Flash plugin+Firefox on Linux


It has been a while since I have posted anything on Linuxquestions.org . Recently I installed Ubuntu Linux 6.06LTS and the installation went without a hitch. I like the UI and I have it working to my needs. My question is regarding the Flash plugin in Firefox. It seems that the plugin tends to block menus on certain websites. Its not an old issue but I thought that it would be fix. Try this website with flash enabled and without flash:

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer

You will notice that with flash enabled the menus get blocked. Its a funny behaviour and it happens in lots of other websites. This one is an example of what I am writting about.

Yes, I am getting the same problem. Did you file any bug-report?

I'm getting the menu's being behind some items. The same thing happens in konqueror as well, so it's either a bug with the flash plugin on maybe a mistake in the website.

I have actually sent the bug in back in 2005 but it hasn't been issued. I don't use Firefox with flash in order to avoid this, but it just seems to be an issue with flash itself or the way Firefox is written for Linux.
