I was listening to MP3 files on the website http://www.kingsleyamplifiers.com.
On some of the MP3 files listed I was unable to listen to the file when I
clicked on the link. Instead of starting to play the file my browser window
switched to a screen with lots of what appeared to be code of some sort. This
does not occur on all of the MP3 files on this website, only some of them. The
problem does not reproduce when I use IE 6.0 to try to access the files.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I entered the URL above and duplicated the problem. I then tried to download
the file from the same URL using Microsoft IE 6.0 and the file downloaded
without any problem.
2.

The server is misconfigured and sending a content type of text/plain for the MP3
files.  That tells Mozilla that it's a text file, which Mozilla then tries to
display.

This is a tech evangelism issue.  It's up to them to fix it.
