Whenever I include flash content on a page it causes IE & FF3+ to redraw the background. This does not happen in Google Chrome, Safari, or FF2.
On every page of my site there is a small flash animation that is in a hidden div. That flash content become visible and plays on a mouse-over event. That all works fine. However, in the above mentioned browsers, that flash content causes the site's background to be redrawn on every page-load, causing a flicker. Is there any way to prevent this? A google search revealed other people having the same issue, but no resolution.
You can view the problem here:
(Run your mouse over the animation in the lower-right corner to trigger the flash animation)
Removing the flash content fixes the issue, but I of course would like to keep it. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time,
It looks like this person has done some serious documentation about this issue. Can we get this addressed?
