firefox flash focus

D’oh! I was having a focus problem on a webpage with an embedded flash object (produced with openlaszlo). If the user set focus on some other part of the page, and then returned to the flash object, focus would not return immediately without some “poking around” — clicking different elements. It turned out this was because the object was embedded using code that contained a title, and therefore a floating tooltip, and that tooltip was stealing focus. The solution for me was just to remove the “title=…” part of the “object classid=…” tag.
