I've looked for an answer to this question in these forums and in several other places but have been unable to find a solution.
It seems that with Actionscript 2.0 I can no longer scroll the browser (html page) while the flash movie is in focus (even if there is no scrolling component in focus) with the mouse wheel...I have to click outside of the bounds of the flash movie in order to scroll the html page using the wheel. The current movie that I am testing this with is 774px in width by 1000px in height. Switching the movie to 100% width and 1000px in height completely disables browser scrolling with the mouse wheel. I've tried this on both IE6 and Firefox 0.9.2 and get the same results.
I've tried reverting back to Actionscript 1.0 and this fixes the problem but causes too many problems with the rest of the code in my site. Any help on fixing this in Actionscript 2.0 would be very much appreciated.
I won't call this a bug or Flash problem, I think it is normal.
