can't get swf to dispaly in firefox

I can not get my flash to display in firefox at all.  All it is the media display component showing an flv.  It works fine in IE, does not display in firefox 1.0.2

Here is the code:

<object codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" height="400" width="550" align="middle" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000">
<param value="14552" name="_cx" />
<param value="10583" name="_cy" />
<param value="" name="FlashVars" />
<param value="http://www.mysite.com/video/my.swf" name="Movie" />
<param value="http://www.mysite.com/video/my.swf" name="Src" />
<param value="Window" name="WMode" />
<param value="-1" name="Play" />
<param value="-1" name="Loop" />
<param value="High" name="Quality" />
<param value="" name="SAlign" />
<param value="-1" name="Menu" />
<param value="" name="Base" />
<param value="sameDomain" name="AllowScriptAccess" />
<param value="ShowAll" name="Scale" />
<param value="0" name="DeviceFont" />
<param value="0" name="EmbedMovie" />
<param value="FFFFFF" name="BGColor" />
<param value="" name="SWRemote" />
<param value="" name="MovieData" />
<param value="1" name="SeamlessTabbing" /></object>

What am i doing wrong ?

Firefox doesn't support the object tag, you need to use the embed tag.  You should always use both to be compatable with all browsers.

Replace your code with:

<object codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" height="400" width="550" align="middle" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000">
<param value="14552" name="_cx" />
<param value="10583" name="_cy" />
<param value="http://www.mysite.com/video/my.swf" name="Movie" />
<param value="http://www.mysite.com/video/my.swf" name="Src" />
<param value="Window" name="WMode" />
<param value="false" name="Play" />
<param value="false" name="Loop" />
<param value="High" name="Quality" />
<param value="false" name="Menu" />
<param value="sameDomain" name="AllowScriptAccess" />
<param value="ShowAll" name="Scale" />
<param value="FFFFFF" name="BGColor" />
<param value="1" name="SeamlessTabbing" />
<embed src="http://www.mysite.com/video/my.swf" _cx="14552" _cy="10583" WMode="Window" Play="false" Loop="false" Quality="High" Menu="false" AllowScriptAccess="sameDomain" Scale="ShowAll" BGColor="#FFFFFF" SeamlessTabbing="true" height="400" width="550" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" />
</embed>
</object>

And it should work fine.

yes, and when i go to other flash sites, i can view those fine.  Even when I go to the SWF URL directly in firefox, it loads there.  Just on the page itself, it doesnt appear.

As I said, displays fine in IE 6.

Thanks,
