Flashplayer Menus Don't Work CBS.com - Macromedia Flash Player

I used IE7 and I can't get menus to work on some sites since I upgraded to Flash Player Example: http://www.cbs.com/daytime/atwt/ If I click on the choices a submenu comes up, but when I click on those choices nothing happens. The menus worked before the upgrade and they work in other browsers...

    Default Flashplayer Menus Don't Work CBS.com

    I used IE7 and I can't get menus to work on some sites since I upgraded to
    Flash Player
    Example:
    http://www.cbs.com/daytime/atwt/
    If I click on the choices a submenu comes up, but when I click on those
    choices nothing happens.
    The menus worked before the upgrade and they work in other browsers

    I am a developer with the same problem - it seems to have to do with cross
    browser scripting? My menu links are relative URLS (beginning with '/') passed
    via

    getURL("javascript:nw('" + link + "')");

    so as to call a javascript function 'nw' located on the page containing the
    menu so that the links can be opended in a new window. These menu links no
    longer work after users upgrade to Flash Player 9,0,115,0. Where can I find a
    list of rules on how I CAN allow this kind of communication?

    Thanks and best regards

    yes, I saw that. It doesn't work however. (see for example
    http://groups.google.com/group/macromedia.flash/browse_thread/thread/8a5a9de1796
    bc017/27ffac119a504c86).
    I did 'solve' the problem however by a workaround using ExternalInterface.call
    instead of the now useless getURL.
    Thanks and best regards
