Unhappy Firefox problem overlaping menus

Hello, I have a problem with Firefox in opening some menus on pages in which there are images or flash movies, this is , when trying to unfold the menus on the page, the images hide the content and I can't access (actually see) all.
An example will clarify. I use Firefox and OpenSUSE 10.2, and this problem is well seen when you enter Nvidia's home page and try to access the menus for browsing to the section of downloads, or just try to unfold the long one on products, the images and the flash pictures hide them and you can't inteact easily.
If anyone has a solution please share it.

Thanks a lot...

It's a known issue with the Adobe flash plug-in.
A workaround is to install the NoScript extension to Firefox which blocks the flash animations as a default feature, along with the javascripts ...
Yet you can see the flash animations on demand by enabling the site as authorized temporarily, and to access the menus by disabling the site again.
