Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100417
Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid - 64 bit) Namoroka/3.6.5pre GTB7.1

Clicking on a 'hot spot' in a flash file does not open the corresponding link. Works fine on Firefox for Windoze. To reproduce, go to and click on any of the states in the US map. Flash detects cursor movement (states turn red when rolled over), but button press action is incorrect -- state just goes back to gray on button press, and no link is opened. In Windows environment, state turns black and the new link is opened on button press.

Lee (and anyone else affected),

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time.

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported? Please let us know if you do.

If we do not hear from you this bug report will close in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
