Firefox plays SWF object on page open

Hello Experts;

Firefox begins playing an embedded SWF file as soon as the page with the file is opened rather than when the link in the page to the file is clicked. IE8 does not have the problem, it plays the SWF file only when the link is clicked. Any suggestions on how I can change the behavior in Firefox.

Thank you,

Thanks for the response but I don't want to remove the SWF, I want to stop it from playback when the page opens. No problem in IE but Firefox and Chrome execute the SWF on opening the page with the embedded Flash File.
I've tried setting the params in the object to stop Firefox and Chrome from automatically playing SWF file;

<param name="autoplay" value="false">
<param name="autostart" value="0">

The values don't make any difference, the embedded SWF still plays when the page is opened. Maybe I've got the synatx wrong... still looking for a solution?

Thank you; apparently "0" and "false" are not interchangeable.
