When I try to go to it says "This content requires an HTML5 compatible browser / device, including Webkit, or the Adobe Flash Player plugin installed", but I'm pretty sure Firefox Nightly is an HTML5 compatible browser…  ;)

(The message is displayed in a iframe from so perhaps it's them we have to talk to?) simply assumes that only WebKit-based browsers are HTML5 compatible:

          if ( (typeof Ext.browser == 'undefined') || (typeof == 'undefined') || (! {
          // no webkit present either

          var alternateContent = '<br/><br/>This content requires an HTML5 compatible browser, or the Adobe Flash Player plugin installed.<br/><br/> '
          + '&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href=>Get Flash</a>';
          document.write(alternateContent);  // insert non-flash content
