Default Flash Not Showing Consistently


I often use the design mode in Dreamweaver 2004 to create my websites. I know this isn't the best approach for solid code, but I'm more interested in design than the code. Anyway, my flash files are not showing up consistently in the newest version of Firefox. If you click on them they show up however. What can I do to make sure that there is more consistency to their visibility? The site can be located at: http://joelmertz.net Thanks! The code to this site is below:

This sounds like it may be related to the Eolas patent violation issue. You might want to research on google what can be done in FF. I know there are several work arounds for IE, but not sure how extensive the documentation is for FF.
