If you’re keeping your computer secure and up-to-date with updates, you’ve probably noticed that in Internet Explorer you have to first click on the flash animation or any other object (such as movie, etc) to be able to interactively use it.

I understand that Microsoft is trying to protect us from unwanted actions in our computer but if as a web developer this bothers you, I’ve found a solution.

Here’s one from Macromedia:

And personally I like the solution that I’ve found on Amara Software site:
