Call off the hounds, I've solved it. 

it turns out that when the a nested movie clip called the variables it
called them from one nesting level up, and I'd coded that as
_root.variable. Flash was fine with that in testing, but the browser
plugin didn't like it. Once I'd changed the path to _parent.variable it
was all working as planned again.

Odd that the Test Movie behaved differently though.
