Flash objects break wordpress in Internet Explorer

Today I had problem loading my pages properly in Firefox but not Internet Explorer, I wondered why this happen as I never had this problem with my blog before. At first I thought there was a problem with the scripts, but it still won’t load completely even after disabling the scripts, then I tried to disable activex controls, and it loaded perfectly without the flash objects. Then I suspect the flash videos I have is causing those problems, I tried different flash objects and I found out that those with <object> tags won’t break the page, but those with <embed> actually do. I changed all my videos to

<ins><object type=’application/x-shockwave-flash’ data=’somefile.swf’><param
name=’allowScriptAccess’ value=’sameDomain’ /><param name=’movie’ value=’somefile.swf’><param
name=’quality’ value=’best’/><param name=’bgcolor’ value=’#ffffff’ /><param
name=’scale’ value=’noScale’ /><param name=’wmode’ value=’window’/><param name=’salign’
value=’TL’ /></object></ins>
