By default, Flash is always on top.
Applying a wmode of opaque (or, in some cases, transparent) is the solution.

Opaque mode allows your DHTML drop down menus to stay in front of your Flash movie as well as hiding non-essential Flash from screen readers. Yes, transparent mode will also allow your DHTML drop down menus to render properly and will hide non-essential Flash, but due to possible performance issues, that's best left for opaque mode. Use transparent mode to show elements stacked beneath your Flash movie and when actual transparency is needed.

In summary, there are 2 DIV tags - one an image (with hover over effect) and the other flash. The popup doesn't work in any other browser other than IE. Looking to make it operational in other major browsers like Firefox, Safari and Opera.

Any advice would be very grateful.

I guess we need to see your code in order to help.
Beside from that, I had the same issue just a week ago. Refer to this thread, maybe it will help: http://codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=160473
