    (FP Bug?) - Mc's/Sprite's events triggered when mouse leaves SWF area

    Fygo Level 1

      Hi guys,


      I wonder if somebody had a similar problem and can help out. I have a button on y=0 (may be either Movieclip or Sprite) with two events: ROLL_OVER and ROLL_OUT. Now when the mouse pointer leaves the SWF area, both of these events get triggered, even if the button is not hovered at all. There is no MOUSE_LEAVE event defined nor anything like that (see the code below). I realized that changing the y position of the button helps, strangely small numbers don't - if I set y=1 the bug still occurs, but y=20 solves the problem. What the hell? This happens only in Firefox on Mac, Safari seems to work alright. (FF 5.0.1 and 6 tested, on OSX 10.6.8 and 10.7)


      I uploaded a video to youtube in case somebody would be interested of seeing this from Windows (where I assume this doesn't happen, but cannot test at the moment - please leave feedback if you could - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKWl50v_MIo - first 10 seconds are kinda crappy, sorry)


      Is this a Flash Player bug or am I missing something really badly here? Thanks!
