Why I need to click twice to interact with the Flash sound player in Internet Explorer and how to fix it? How to avoid the message "click to active and use this control" when I roll mouse over the Flash sound player?

This is a result of the latest Internet Explorer update. This update changes the way in which Internet Explorer handles some Web pages that use ActiveX controls and Java applets. Examples of ActiveX controls include the following:

  • Macromedia Flash Player
  • Adobe Reader
  • Apple QuickTime Player
  • Microsoft Windows Media Player
  • Real Networks RealPlayer
  • Sun Java Virtual Machine

With the update, you cannot interact with ActiveX controls from certain Web pages until these controls are enabled. To enable an ActiveX control, you need to manually click the control. When you roll mouse over the control, it will display a message "click to active and use this control".

There are several ways to fix this problem so that the user is not impacted by Microsoft's changes. The following example demostrate the simplest way:

1. Below the last <object> in your web page, insert the following JavaScript line which calls the iefix.js file:

<script type="text/javascript" src="iefix.js"></script>

2. Download the iefix.js file from HERE, upload it to the same web directory as your web page.
