When loading this file:

http://www.boeing.com/defense-space/space/bls/missions/335/

And then clicking on the 300K link that redirects to this file:

http://boeingdelta.edgeboss.net/wmedia-live/boeingdelta/41386/300_boeingdelta-aug22_080802.asx

I get a hang instead of getting a dialog asking me if I want an app to handle the file and/or an automatic launch of an external app.

Tested in FF 3.0.1 and Firefox 3.1 Alpha 2.
HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Do you have a plugin that handles this file ?
I forgot: FF3.01 and SM trunk loads the WMP plugin but the plugin can not connect. no hang...
I don't get a hang either.  I tested on OS X 10.5.4 (with Firefox
3.0.1).  I've got the current version (2.2.1.11) of the Flip4Mac
plugin installed.

If I visit the first URL from comment #0 and click on the "300K" link,
I get prompted to either save the file or open it with an external
app.

If I visit the second URL directly, the plugin loads (and finishes
loading) and nothing happens.  But if I click the plugin's play
button, a short "program not available" video plays.
I think we can close it now.
