I believe the reason you are seeing this is that when you use the object tag to add the banner the user is required to click the control to active it due to the increased security of IE6 and 7, so the first click activates it, and the second actually uses it.

i was told that microsoft made it in fact,

because they were forced by the court to do so,

and the solution is to add special code to IE so it will work well

the code you have to insert in your page is:

<!--[if gte IE 6]><script type='text/javascript' language='javascript' src='JS/NoIEActivate.js'></script><![endif]-->

and the JS page has to be:

 var strBrowser = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();
 if(strBrowser.indexOf("msie") > -1 && strBrowser.indexOf("mac") < 0){
  var theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName('object');
  var theObjectsLen = theObjects.length;
  for (var i = 0; i < theObjectsLen; i++) {
   if(theObjects[i ].outerHTML){
    if(theObjects[i ].data){
     theObjects[i ].removeAttribute('data');
    var theParams = theObjects[i ].getElementsByTagName("param");
    var theParamsLength = theParams.length;
    for (var j = 0; j < theParamsLength; j++) {
      if(theParams[j ].name.toLowerCase() == 'flashvars'){
        var theFlashVars = theParams[j ].value;
    var theOuterHTML = theObjects[i ].outerHTML;
    var re = /<param name="FlashVars" value="">/ig;
    theOuterHTML = theOuterHTML.replace(re,"<param name='FlashVars' value='" + theFlashVars + "'>");
    theObjects[i ].outerHTML = theOuterHTML;

window.onunload = function() {
 if (document.getElementsByTagName) {
  var objs = document.getElementsByTagName("object");
  for (i=0; i<objs.length; i++) {
   objs[i ].outerHTML = "";

 (attention: i add spaces in every [ i ] to avoid it to look like a lamp: Idea so remove it when you copy it...)


and good luck to anyone who will use it..
