User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_9_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/42.0.2311.135 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

This is likely an issue in every 32 bit Firefox Version on Linux, Ubuntu -32bit where the mp3 file not being able to decode with html decoding and hence would be requiring fallback mechanism to some flash player.
This is similar issue which was earlier reported only on Windows: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=919572


Actual results:

Media resource could not be decoded


Expected results:

Media resource should've been decoded

Do both of the following fail to play?
http://www.russianlessons.net/audio/lesson3-20.mp3 — Content-Type: audio/mpeg
http://hpr.dogphilosophy.net/test/mp3.mp3 — Content-Type: application/octet-stream

Please test the current version of Firefox, not the very old Firefox 31.

On what operating system are you testing this, Mac OS X or Ubuntu Linux?

If Linux,
1. Is GStreamer installed?
2. Paste the following in the address bar, then press Enter.
about:config?filter=media.gstreamer.enabled
3. Click the “I'll be careful, I promise!” button.
4. Is media.gstreamer.enabled set to true? If not, right-click it and choose Reset.
