Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050728 Firefox/1.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050728 Firefox/1.0+

Many pages use the following code to put a background sound:

<object data="http://content.ytmnd.com//79000/79939/sound.wav" type="audio/wav"> 
<param name="autostart" value="true"> 
<param name="loop" value="true"> 
<param name="hidden" value="true"> 
</object> 

Right now this does not work in the latest DP. A fix is available at:

But it involves installing greasemonkey with a user script. I don't see why the
tag doesn't work natively in Firefox.


Reproducible: Always

Nevermind, it works with this:

Install QT
Go in QT preferences
Assign "Wave files" to QT
