I am using the Wimpy Button (check it out
) in order to play MP3s on my web site. Unfortunately this Flash movie does not respond to mouse clicks if it is embedded within a "div" element with overflow set to "auto".
The source code for this page is below and the page is running live here
<div style="overflow: auto;">
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,47,0"

You are supposed to be able to click on the big "play" button and it should play an MP3. Unfortunately it won't respond to mouse clicks although if you move the mouse over the button the mouse cursor will flicker ever so slightly as if it would really like to work. This page works as expected in Internet Explorer so I would recommend comparing the behaviour in these two browsers.
I suspect that this might be a problem with all Flash movies but I've only been able to try it with this one. Does anybody have any ideas why this movie does not work as expected?
