Question:
Why do pop-up menus appear behind Flash movies?
 
To have the popups appear over Flash content you need to modify the Flash object code by adding the following parameter to the OBJECT tag:
<param name='wmode' value='transparent'>
For non-IE browsers, you'll also need to add the following parameter to the EMBED tag:
<embed ... wmode='transparent'>
Here is a sample:
<object classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' 
codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.ca 
b#version=6,0,29,0' width='720' height='81'> 
<!-- make sure you insert the following line -->
<param name='WMode' value='Transparent'>
<param name='movie' value='./flash.swf'> <param name='quality' 
value='high'> <embed src='http://your_domain.com/your_flash_file.swf' 
quality='high' pluginspage='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer' 
type='application/x-shockwave-flash' width='100' 
height='100' wmode='transparent'></embed></object>
