User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3 Build Identifier: A browser appliction author cannot depend on the browser to provide sound support (simple ability to play a wav file). It depends on what else happens to be installed on the computer (e.g. flash, quicktime, etc.,). Also, even when a pluggin is installed that supports it, the behavior varies depending on which pluggin and version happens to be installed. For example, we've found some pluggins cause the browser to freeze while the sound is being downloaded or cause focus to be lost when the sound is played. Sound support should be part of the baseline mozilla platform like it is part of the base IE platform. It should have a predictible download and play behavior that is consistent and reliable across all platforms. Reproducible: Always

Is this really a duplicate of bug 92110? jst: this bug seems to be more about playing sound files via the DOM or via some plugin. does that mean this bug belongs in some plugin or DOM category instead?
