Flash in FF stops and is difficult to start again.

I have a number of flash slideshows on a site and they work in IE.
I use <object> code which validates, rather than the code given by flash.

In FF the show will run through once and provides a button to rerun it. Nothing happens when I press the button. And it remembers that it has already seen the show, so after a restart it will just go straight to the button and bypass the show.

What have I done wrong, or what is going wrong.

<div id="slideshow">
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="shows/1960s/example_show.swf" width="264" height="231" id="1960s" align="middle">
<param name="movie" value="shows/1960s/example_show.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="play" value="true" />
<param name="bgColor" value="#FFFFFF" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<param name="pluginspage" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />/>

Did you get this resolved? Definitely browser-related, here. This thread might also be of interest: [webmasterworld.com...]
