Has happened since version 3.0, but prior to version 3.5.1 you have to move the dialog to see the effect.

If you insert am URL to image or flash in 'Flash Dialog' you will see that there is no preview or part of preview.

Now grab the dialog and start moving it. You will see that parts of preview that are out side editor's content area are visible (See test.png)

Hi, I found the problem, when creating the flash preview (via javascript in CKEditor) he ends up behind the main editor iframe, this drawing shows the window that inserts the flash down. Even changing 'z-index' can not fix. Here in the company instead of printing the 'embed', create an 'iframe' pointing to a page that creates the 'embed', so it works in Chrome.

before: dialog.preview.setHtml( '<embed height="100%" width="100%" src="'

+ previewPreloader.getAttribute( 'src' ) ) + '" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>' );


dialog.preview.setHtml('<iframe src="/app/include/ckeditor/plugins/flash/dialogs/preview.asp?src=' + src + '" style="width: 100%; height: 100%"> </iframe>');

I'm not able to reproduce this issue on any CKEditor version so apparently it was fixed in the Flash plugin.

I confirm that it is fixed. I wasn't able to reproduce it as well.
