From EA's support site

Question What are the minimum system requirements for FIFA 2005? 
Answer

Minimum:
... Cut out text that is not important....
 Required Operating Systems:
 Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP or Windows 2000
 Note that Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0 are not supported.

Required Software:

There is no way to use Firefox to play EA Sports FIFA 2005. EA wrote FIFA to
only work with Internet Explorer. It should be possible for you to bookmark
(crtl +D) the EA Matchmaker site in Internet Explorer. Then you could open
Internet Explorer only for online play and leave Firefox as your default browser.
