It works when the blank line before the XML Declaration is removed, presumably
Mozilla's XML parser has become stricter between 0.7 and 0.8 (feeding the file
through a well-formedness checker returns "Error: Misplaced or wrong-case xml
declaration in unnamed entity at line 2 char 6").

Ever confirmed: true
please file a bug in the appropriate mozdev bugzilla component

the XML standard is very strict about handling well-formedness errors.
