Flash wmode not really transparent in Firefox

So my Flash navigation in Firefox isn’t really transparent. I mean, everything below the flyout navigation appears just fine and in this sense it is transparent. But I have some links there that cannot be clicked in Firefox, works great in IE7. I’m using swfobject with an addParam(“wmode”, “transparent”);

Anybody else ever have this problem? I’m pretty sure I can make a workaround with JavaScript but I’d really rather not do this if at all possible.
