I can confirm the problem with Firefox 3.0, but this appears to be fixed in the next release, Firefox 3.5. You can try it out:

Hi Ria,

Thanks for your response. I downloaded 3.5 from the mozilla link and when I opened the dmg file I got a version of Shiretoko. The videos on the map play fine now but what about this message on Mozilla:  

"Current users of Mozilla Firefox should not use Shiretoko Alpha 1."

most people viewing my site are using firefox 3.0  Can't the problem be fixed in 3.0?

This bug was caused by Bug 398446 but in this bug I see no dependent bugs similar to your problem, so it seems that nobody has complained about a bug similar to your problem until now. And this makes it highly unlikely that it will be repaired for Firefox 3.0.
Existing releases are usually only updated with stability and security fixes. Patches always have the risk in them that they will cause fallout (new other bugs), which is unacceptable in a public release.
Firefox 3.5 has now been released in a final version. All users are encouraged to upgrade to it.
