Is this an HTML, Flash, Firefox or Zonbu bug?

November 2, 2007

Occasionally I run in to sites that incorporate flash and have problems where content appears under flash content.

Check out this site and hover over “Features” on the menu. http://www.xfxforce.com/web/home.jspa

On my Zonbu, the menu drops down behind the flash graphic, so I can’t click on things. Is anyone else seeing this? Any idea how to correct it, if at all?

A friend tells me FF on Windows renders properly, with the menu on top of the flash.

Zonbu Update any day now…

November 2, 2007

Zonbu Beta LogoGregoire, from Zonbu, has announced on the support pages that a new release will be out soon, as I correctly predicted a few days ago. Here is what he had to say:

New build is on its wayby Gregoire Gentil on 11/01.
A new official build is on its way. And it’s looking very good! The new image is scheduled to be pushed next week. We have fixed all the blocking bugs you have reported to us, especially one of the most painful problems: the back USB ports which were not working properly. We have also added full support for the iPod – all generations – including video support. This build will be the LAST beta build. Thanks for your support and stay tuned!

I hope it includes a freshening of all the apps, especially the IM and Image Editing apps, as well as improvements in the wireless driver and the overall network wizard. While the wizard is an improvement on past releases it is still not completely intuitive to an end user, and it could probably have fewer screens/steps.
