Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4

My problem is identical to this one: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=340348 However I tried the link in IE and it plays the movie vs. when I play it in Firefox, it brings up text in the browser window similar to the screenshot in 340348 and it freezes.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click the link.
2. Watch another window come up with code (text) in it.
3. Watch Firefox icons in the taskbar appear, then disappear, then appear, while the firefox windows are frozen/blank.

Actual Results:  
Firefox freezes; I have to close/restart firefox from the task manager.

Expected Results:  
Movie plays (as it does in IE).

I use plain vanilla Firefox.
