I'm not that much of a flash guru and cant seem to figure out why this is occurring. I'm used to having issues with IE but this time its Firefox. I'm using swftools for Flash handling and have created the nodes using SWF Tools filter.

The flash movies uses a xml file to load a series of images, setting the variables for speed, transition types and styles.

Embedding Method
SWFObject 2 - JavaScript

Add JavaScript to all pages - selected

Flash version: 9

This is the code that's rendered in Firefox

<object id="swf12668699971" height="369" width="725" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.websitedomainhere.com/sites/default/files/flash/DJ_MC_splash.swf">
<param name="swliveconnect" value="default"/>
<param name="play" value="true"/>
<param name="loop" value="true"/>
<param name="menu" value="true"/>
<param name="quality" value="autohigh"/>
<param name="scale" value="noborder"/>
<param name="align" value="l"/>
<param name="salign" value="tl"/>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
<param name="bgcolor" value="#214C9"/>
<param name="version" value="9"/>
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"/>

<param name="flashvars" value="xml_file=sites/default/files/flash/DJ_MC_splash.xml&width=725&height=369"/>

This is the IE code

All/Any help appreciated

Safari is a lot more sensitive to problems in embedded object code than most other browsers.
Check for any errors in the paths to your SWF files.

Our advice is to add the following and ensure the paths match in every detail:

<param name="movie" value="xxx"/>
<embed src="xxx"/>

Good luck and we hope that helps.
