Border on Flash broken in Firefox

I have created a Flash object that I have imported into Frontpage 2003.  My problem is that when I set the border to 1, it displays perfectly in IE6, but in Firefox, Mozilla, and Netscape, the border is broken.  It is missing on the top and about 80% of the sides, and looks something like this:

                              top of picture          


                       (Border shows at bottom)

I am running Flash MX 2004 to author the Flash file.  Anyone have this problem, and know of a simple workaround?  Thanks.

you could get rid of the border in flash completely and then put a border on the div or table tag that wraps it in the page...

Good point.  I guess I could have just nested another table around it.  I'll give it a try.
