[as2]Flash Beginner needs help removing a movie clip!

Hi there,
I have a text field that loads HTML inside a movie clip, and I CAN remove all text with the following code, but not the textfield itself. No clickable buttons will work in that space after the text field has once been loaded there. Even when I manually remove the movie clip from the screen itself. Any suggestions?

This is the code I’m using:
homeButton.onRelease = function() {

Make sure to give tArticle a linkage name in the library, attach it the stage with attachMovie instead of placing it there manually, then remove it with removeMovieClip(tArticle); when you need to.

Oh and make sure it’s at a positive depth.
