Occasionally, the [[Main Pages]] can produce some odd '''glitches''' by clicking and holding down a button, and then dragging off them. This is due to the limits of the [[Flash]] software. Specifically, any image or animation that only appears while the cursor stays over a button remains if you click the left mouse button and hold it down, then drag the cursor away from the Main Page button, and let go.

More than 2 problems. Seriously.

Occasionally, the Main Pages can produce some odd glitches by clicking and holding down a button, and then dragging off them. This is due to the limits of the Flash software. Specifically, any image or animation that only appears while the cursor stays over a button remains if you click the left mouse button and hold it down, then drag the cursor away from the Main Page button, and let go.

Another glitch.

This is a list of oddities and inconsistencies in the Main Pages caused by this glitch. In the list below, "&" is used if it doesn't matter which is done first and "→" if they must be done in order.

Main Page 19 and Main Page 25 are glitch-free because the videos will be interrupted if you hover over another button while one is playing.
