Active content like Flash will always be on top. Additionally the menu
almost useless for people who have JS disabled or not available at all.
You should fix that.

You would really need to use an entirely different menu approach (the FW
menus are really an awful solution), I'm afraid. Check the uberlink and
MacFly tutorials at PVII - http://www.projectseven.com/
and the Navbar tutorial/articles at Thierry's place
Or this one (more recent article):
Or to get it done fast, go here -
you can still go to that page where you should find the subordinate choices.

Murray already gave some valuable hints, I just want to add a note.
The main issue with your menu is not the scripting (there's nothing
wrong with properly done JS-based menus), but that there are "null
links". You should avoid them. In a menu _every_ link should point to a
real page using the 'href' attribute. Of course there can be scripts
attached, for example to open a submenu on mouseover, but the link
itself should still work with JS disabled. Every level in such a menu
should be a reachable target and should contain the links to its
So with JS enabled users will get the fly-out effect and can directly go
to the subpage they want. Without JS they might have to click around a
bit more, but will still be able to reach what they're looking for.
