User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_2; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.22.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.5 Safari/531.22.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6

When following Ogg links in OS X 10.6.2, Firefox does not know how to play them and only downloads them.  

http://2009.r2.co.nz/20100118/50350.ogm

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find link to an Ogg Theora file
2. Click
Actual Results:  
Asks if the file should be saved.

Expected Results:  
The video should play either inline or launch a helper application to play.

Ogg Vorbis plays fine.

The data is returned as text/plain MIME-type, which is wrong. Firefox doesn't know what to do with them, it doesn't use the file-extension (.ogm would have been wrong anyway).
