Flash Freezing Browser

My browser is crashing - firefix (or freezing -seamonkey) once every 2 to 5 hours.
Difficult to trace down why.
1. It is not a memory problem (I have tested that)
2. It is possibly to do with flash, as it continuously all day displays flash or image files.
3. Could it be a database problem? It connects to a MySQL db about every 15 seconds.

Could someone please take a look at the code in the webpage, as I was wondering if it has to do with some syntax errors?

    <% if(advertFileType.matches(".swf")) {%>
<div align="centre">
   <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
   WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100% NAME="animation">
<PARAM NAME="MOVIE" value="<%=movieURL%>">
<PARAM NAME="PLAY" value="true">
<PARAM NAME="LOOP" value="true">
