Why my Flash animation won't display in Firefox ?

The HTML tag used to display a Flash animation as two parts : object and embed. The object part is for Internet Explorer and the embed part for Mozilla Firefox. Make sure you set the correct filename at both places.

For example :

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/
swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="148" height="191">
<param name="movie" value="flashvortex.swf">
<param name="quality" value="best" />
<param name="menu" value="true" />
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
<embed src="flashvortex.swf" quality="best" menu="true" width="148" height="191" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowScriptAccess="always" />
</object>

IMPORTANT: The above tag is just an example. If you don't have the HTML tag provided by the generator, read the following FAQ.

As you can see above, the Flash animation filename appears at 2 places, one is for Internet Explorer and the other for Mozilla Firefox. Make sure you set the same value at both places.
