I uploaded an Aleo Slideshow and for some reason it is doubling up on Firefox. However, in Explorer it is only showing one slideshow (which is correct). please see www.thepetalfarm.com for example.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I uploaded the slideshow online

I see two OBJECT tags for IE and also two EMBED tags for Firefox in the source code of that page (View > Page Source). The first one is in the HEAD section and the second one in the BODY section. You need to remove the object / embed code in the HEAD section of that page. <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="458" height="380">

 <param name="movie" value="slide.swf" />
 <param name="quality" value="high" />
 <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
 <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
 <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
 <embed src="slide.swf"
        quality="high"
        type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
        WMODE="transparent"
        width="458"
        height="380"
        allowFullScreen="true"
        pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
        allowScriptAccess="always" />
