User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5

In firefox 2.0.0.12 the web page at http://www.badguy.myzen.co.uk/photos/index3.html is displayed correctly - the Data element of the Object html tag causes a second web page to be displayed inside the first. However Firefox 3 Beta 5 shows the alternate text instead. It looks like the parsing of the Object HTML tag has been broken.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit website with FF3B5
2. Note "click here" text rather than the gallery

Actual Results:  
"Click Here" text

Expected Results:  
Gallery index webpage opened inside first webpage

Doesn't happen in 2.0.0.12
Flash .swf files linked in this way do not load either, e.g.:

<object data="/images/words.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="410"><param name="movie" value="/images/words.swf" /><param name="menu" value="false" /></object>

This code displays nothing. I'm 95% sure it was working in 3.0b4.
Is this bug related to Bug 382042?

do you still see this in FF v3.6?

No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.x or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
