Internet Explorer 8 Iframe Issue #25
I have created a web page that opens a lightbox window (in this case I used Colorbox).
I tested the page using Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Chrome and these worked fine. When I tested it on Internet Explorer 8 I had a curious result. When you drag your mouse left and outside the animation frame, the animation turns blue as IE creates a selection box around it as if selecting text on a web page for copying.
This is not really a desirable result for me, so I wondered if anyone knows of a work-around that I could use. If you have difficulty understanding the problem I have posted an example at:
Click on the link "Click here for 3D view" to open the lightbox viewer, then drag the animation left and outside the box to see the frame turn blue. Make sure you use IE as there is no problem with other browsers.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

You can even try the bundle version of Reel from the CDN which has this 3rd party plugin bundled in alongside the latest version of Reel:
