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. 3.
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.
