Multiple Lists and IE9.. it continues

So when last we left, I was frantically tearing what’s left of my hair out, attempting to debug what was going on with JavaScript and Flash and Internet Explorer to make them hate each other.
As It turns out, in my scripts, I hide my flash object when it is not being directly accessed by the user. (It’s mimicking an attachment popup, so why would I have it sitting in the middle of the page unless the user wanted to attach something anyway?) I was doing this using “display: none”.
Bad, bad, bad coder!
There is a browser quirk, where if the Flash object is not rendered (e.g. “display: block”), the browser doesn’t recognize the object.
I replace the “display: none” with the “left: -5000px” trick, and viola! Flash and JavaScript and IE are talking and everyone is happy again.
