    Check to see if you have the proper Flash Player plug-in installed, for example if the flash file you are trying to see in Firefox is made in Flash 8 you need Flash Player 8 to see it.
    I havenít heard any problems regarding the flash file size.

    Make sure you include the embed tag inside your object tag as well. Something like the following assuming the flash file is in the same directory as the html file (of course change the width, height, background colors, etc.):

    <embed src="yourflashfile.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"
    width="750" height="450"
    type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed>

    Mozilla browsers use the embed tag. IE uses parameter names.

    i used the <param> tag, does it mean i have to overwrite it and change it to <embed> tag instead?

    No, you use both. Place the embed tag inside the object, but below the <param> tags.

    Both <param> and <embed> tags go within the <object></object> tags.

    What about 100% on the width and the height? It works in IE but the files is small in Firefox. Does 100% not work in Firefox?

    Did you specify the width and height within the <embed></embed> tags?

    I'm not sure why, but the problem has to do with your doctype. If you remove that, it displays fine.
