Flash not displaying in Firefox when using Embed src="index_image.aspx?image=1234" to write binaries

I am attempting to dynamically write binary flash from db (legacy situation...not ideal) into an object's embed tag. This works in IE but not in Firefox. Code is below. Notice the "<embed src='/index_image.aspx?ImagePK=1140'" portion. That referenced aspx page grabs the binary content and writes it to the browser. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how to make this work in Firefox.

Your other movie params use "?StoreImagePK", but the embed source uses "?ImagePK". Is that just a typo here or in your code as well?

Also, make sure that index_image.aspx is setting:
Response.ContentType = "application/x-shockwave-flash";

This is, in fact, a typo. Thank you though for the attempt, I wish it were that easy. :) Any other suggestions?

Just a couple more questions.

Are you running your site from Windows 2003 or something else? Could you post some of the code from index_image.aspx?

The problem was a simple fat-fingered coding issue that was easily corrected when started from scratch. I picked up on a mistake made by the previous developer that was easy to overlook.
