Weird problem with Flash in Firefox


I have the weirdest problem with Flash in Firefox: after one click, the next clicks do not work.
The plugin is still responding, mouseOvers work, animations work, but the clicks on the buttons do not work (they do not trigger the appropiate actions).

I am using Firefox 1.0.7, Flash 8.0.22, WinXP Proffessional with SP2.
My guess is that everything was fine untill I viewed a video on

The thing that confuses me is that if I embed the flash with this code (the one generated by Macromedia), the above problem appears

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="[,0,0,0](,0,0,0)" id="test" width="543" height="262" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="test.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="scale" value="noborder" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
	src="testswf" quality="high" 
	scale="noborder" bgcolor="#ffffff" 
	width="543" height="262" 
	swLiveConnect=true id="test" 
	name="chart" align="middle" 
	allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
	pluginspage="[](" />

… but if I embed it like this

<object data="test.swf" style="width:543; height:262" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" id="test" align="middle">
	<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
	<param name="movie" value="test">
	<param name="quality" value="high">
	<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff">
	<param name="scale" value="noScale">
	<param name="wmode" value="window">

… it works.

What I don’t like about the second one is that is causing problems in IE…

Anybody has any ideas on this one?
