Flash inside an opening and closing DIV

I have a div which contains a flash file inside it. I'm using the Yahoo User Interface to change the hight of the DIV to give the impression that it's opening and closing. In most browsers this seems to be fine, however in Firefox the flash file always appears no matter whether the containing DIV is open or closed.

I'm using SWFObject to display the flash file. I've attached the code I'm using.

The DIV 'miniSpec' is the div which opens and closes.

Where am I going wrong?
<div class="easySpecMini" id="miniSpec" style="cursor: auto;">

    	<img id="easySpecMiniImg" onclick="easySpecAction('miniSpec');" style="cursor: pointer;" src="images/easy-spec-mini-arrow.png" width="959" height="26" alt="Generate a bespoke brochure based on your needs" />

    

    	<div style="width: 646px; float: left;">

            <object id="myid" style="z-index: 0;" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="646" height="320">

            <param name="movie" value="swf/easy_spec_v1_11_cs3.swf" />

            <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

            <!--[if !IE]>-->

            <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="swf/easy_spec_v1_11_cs3.swf" width="646" height="320">

            <!--<![endif]-->

              <p>Alternative content</p>

            <!--[if !IE]>-->

            </object>

            <!--<![endif]-->

            </object>

        </div>

        <div style="width: 288px; height: 320px; padding: 50px 0px 0px 25px; float: left; background: url(images/easy-spec-right-line.png) no-repeat;">

        	<h6 style="font-size: 21px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; color: #bed600;">Clarity through confusion</h6>

			<h5 style="font-size: 18px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px 0px 35px 0px; color: #ffffff;">providing simple answers to<br />complex situations</h5>

Just curious, can you post the full html document? And what DTD are you using?

I managed to get round this by hidding the flash file when the DIV closes.
