The problem is, I have to add two Flash files to a page - in the past with Firefox 1.0.7, I recall using the <object> tag would work, and the <embed> tag would work with IE, so that seemed all good.
Now it doesn't seem to work in Firefox 1.5. Does anybody know what's the -proper- (if there is one) method to add Flash content?
That's about it really.

Make sure that the .swf file extension is defined as type Shockwave Flash Object and that it is to be opened with the Shockwave Flash plugin.
If on Windows, you should also find the plugin npswf32.dll located in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins
If not, you'll have a more specific problem to report, although Flash works fine on my FF/1.5 installation here, so this is not a widespread problem.

When FF 1.5 installed it checked for the list of incompatible extensions/themes, adblock was not one of them (and on [addons.mozilla.org...] the requirement accomodated for FF 1.5).
I've uninstalled adblock and reinstalled it, and now everything seems to work fine.
For anybody who experiences the same problems - try that and see.
Oh, and thank you encyclo and jdMorgan for all your help :)
