Yes: the code in flash if you hover over it causes it
to overide other things.

If you use Flashblock extension it will cause the icon
seen instead of the flash to change to an arrow, but
I'm not on a machine with flashblock today so I'm not
sure if this will restore other function.

This is handy for advertisers using flash but a
nuisance for everyone else.

Personally I've started blocking adservers to cut down
on the nuisance factors.
