Wow - that's some bug report!

I had this problem and didn't get as far as looking for a bug report 
because it was being caused by a Flash setting on this page:


I had "allow third party ..." unchecked, but it broke all flash based 
movie players whose content was on a different domain to the player, 
with the same symptoms of non-working buttons.

I have to admit I didn't read the whole bug report to see if this has 
been mentioned. Also, all pages with flash content have to be closed as 
the setting only takes effect when flash is restarted, and the settings 
manager itself is a Flash app - doh!.
