Container loading Form on contact swf

question: I have created a email form using components from library however when I load them into a empty movie clip; labeled - container they do not work properly. Another problem is with the alert box for fields left empty doesnt show when user hits submit.

The thing is when I just open the swf. contact and view it everything works fine and dandy however when i open index.swf -> has container_mc -> loads contact.swf, the form messes up. Any ideas yall?

I have also ran into this problem when trying to load images in a gallery which also loads into container_mc on main movie.

Thanks in advance for any ideas. I think it might be a _parent or _root issue. If anyone has any good reading on it hit me with that as well. I am gonna google some things. MT
