MtG ad hiding my cursor

WillethWilleth Registered User regular
This is a minor issue, but the current interactive Scars of Mirrodin banner hides my cursor. It's visible when I move it, but stationary, it vanishes. It still works, but it's irritating. If I mouseover it to activate it, the cursor works again.

I'm using Chrome 5.0.375.127 on Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1.

    Same here in Windows Vista, Firefox 3.6.7.
    It even does it if I'm in a different tab from the one the ad is playing in. It's pretty annoying.
    edit: it also kind of makes it shimmy a little if you only move your cursor slowly, making it difficult to position over links.

    I've pulled the ad until the WotC can remove the bug.

    Thanks for letting me know guys.

    The ad seems to be back and doing the same thing.

    They should have a new creative tomorrow. Please let me know if it is still broken tomorrow evening.

    It's not happening with me on Firefox, could you help us out by posting your OS and browser?

    Whoops, of course:

    Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8 (If it still needs to be more specific, tell me).

    Still doing it here too - XP SP3 / Opera 10.62 / Flash 10,1,82,76

    It's really irritating.

    Running XP SP3, I'm seeing this problem in Chrome 6.0.472.59 and IE 8. I didn't manage to check it out in FireFox (either 3.6.8 or .10) as the ads weren't shuffling properly and I never saw the offending ad.

    Don't need to apologize. We're the ones complaining!

    :)

    WotC is going to regenerate a new ad without the mouse over. I would expect to see the new ad in place in a few days.

    I had it happen to me on WinXP/Firefox earlier today.

    Good to know that they're making a new one!

    ok for some reason this wasn't happening to me before but now it is
    I was about to say that it was being caused by a different ad but I just noticed I have the MtG ad open in another window somehow, I don't even remember opening a second window but WHATEVER
    if it is still relevant to post browser and OS I'm using Firefox 3.6.9 in Windows XP

    We are going to replace the flash creative with a static JPEG on Monday.

    We seem to be running into a very old flash bug involving tabbed browsing and mouse cursor changes. (link #1, link #2)

    I'm not a flash guru, so I'm going to trust that the solution it isn't as simple as replacing the cursor when the ad loses focus.
