    This isn't the recommended way to embed a swf.

    You should use SWFObject to embed instead.

    I know I should target your problem instead, but using a better way to embed the SWF may well just eliminate the problem.

    The documentation will teach you how to embed a SWF.

    Let me know if SWFObject works for you.
