So, if you got a bug on FireFox and Safari when trying to insert a @ character into a textfield, just take a look at this post: http://blog.madebypi.co.uk/2009/04/21/transparent-flash-text-entry/

It seems to happen when a div is placed (or was…) over your flash movie.

    Is there a solution to this problem yet? I use a Danish keyboard, and suddenly I can’t find the question mark when I type into a Flash text box.

    It works when I open the sfw separately, but in the browser my ? becomes a +

  2. Problem solved!
    I deleted

  3. Sorry, I meant to say I deleted param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”
