That's not the problem, sorry. SWFObject embed works as expected in FireFox
on any site I've done, or come across... and I'm on XP. I've also not had
_any_ reports from users of any of our sites that say they no longer work...

Flash Player 9 r115 included some security 'enhancements' that caused a number of sites to stop working. This is generally a result of crossdomain.xml files being poorly written or having incorrect mime types.
In these cases, it may appear that the problem affects IE & not Firefox, but what's really happening is that IE's Flash Player has been updated while the player in Firefox is still a previous version.
I can assure you that the swfobject is working properly in IE, Firefox, and Safari.
If you are having trouble with swfs on your own server, first make sure that all the browsers you are comparing have the same Flash Player revision, then check out this article: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/fplayer9_security.html
I'm not sure that it's an xml crossdomain security problem, because in our tests we did not use
We have a pc that will show on some website's flash and some not. So we went testing for a few hours
and tried several approach. We discovered it did not depend on whether you publish the swf to an older
version or any version for that matter. But it depents on how you embed the swf in your html page.
As mentioned before, it happend after a microsoft update, because before everything worked fine.
And on any website the flash worked fine. And he did not install or do anything with that pc..
Last weekend i visited my father and he had a new laptop and he also expierenced the same problem..
I had to uninstall the flash player and reinstall the player online again to get it working.
I don't think it should be the problem of the user.. because you can't expect of everybody to know how to fix this.
So we are using this test pc to find a embed method that works anyway.
