    Link on Flash movie

    Pangman
      Hello,
      This is my website http://www.scottsdale-and-phoenix-real-estate.com/
      Please take a look at the flash movie and move your mouse over it.

      I see dark outline appears around the flash area when the mouses move over the area.

      I use internet exploerer version: 6.0.2800.1106 running on window 2000. I do not see the outline. Everything is fine and the link is working good. However, another computer at the office that uses internet explorer Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_dgr.050301-1519 (which is Window XP with service pack 2 I believe) shows the outline when mouse appear over the flash area and also the link to other page on the flash movie sometimes does not works in internet explorer Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_dgr.050301-1519. I visited many websites that use flash movie as a link to other webpage and see the same thing while using internet explorer Version: 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_dgr.050301-1519. Could anybody give me a pointer on how to fix this issue.

      Thank you,
      Pete

          You should try the Flash forum, as this forum is for topics relating to the program Fireworks.

          The problem you are encountering is due to a recent update to IE which added that "Click to activate control" thing. The reason it was added is due to a questionable patent owned by Eolas, who forced Microsoft to modify their browser in this way.

          To prevent the activation click from showing, there are a number of fixes available. This question is ask every day in the Flash forum, you might find an answer there. Or do a search for 'Eolas Flash fix'.

          I personally use "swfobject" in my own projects.
