This looks more like a bad script checking for the flash version and I don't think that this works with Firefox2 and flash10. The script is out of date with the 10 as flash version number.

If the check works it redirects to http://www.global-tour.de/main.htm and that URL works fine.
I will check later if FF2 fails and if a flash Version 9 makes it working again.
I confirmed that it's the issue that I already expected in comment #1

It doesn't work in Firefox2, Firefox3 and Seamonkey3 with flash10.
Installing flash9 makes it working again.

The script fails with the 2 digit major version number of flash.

Yeah, there are a handful of sites out there that do very brain-dead Flash version sniffing. Bug 456680 is another example.
