Css – FF3/Windows CSS z-index problem with YouTube player


I'm stuck on what appears to be a CSS/z-index conflict with the YouTube player. In Firefox 3 under Windows XP, Take a look at this page: http://spokenword.org/program/21396 Click on the Collect button and note that the pop-up <div> appears under the YouTube player. On other browsers the <div> appears on top. It has a z-index value of 999999. I've tried setting the z-index of the <object> element containing the player to a lower value, but that didn't work. Any idea how to get the pop-up to appear over the player?

Best Solution

Try to add the wmode parameter to be opaque like this:

(Note that it's included in both a <param> tag and a wmode attribute on the <embed> tag.)

<object width='425' height='344'> 
    <param name='movie' value='http://www.youtube.com/v/Wj_JNwNbETA&hl=en&fs=1'> 
    <param name='type' value='application/x-shockwave-flash'> 
    <param name='allowfullscreen' value='true'> 
    <param name='allowscriptaccess' value='always'> 
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <embed width='425' height='344'
