ACTUAL RESULTS:

I'm pretty sure bandcamp uses flash to play its audio, so I'm filing this under "Plugins".  In the above pushlogs, bug 653083 looks most plugin-related -- tentatively flagging as regression from that bug.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64, btw.

Bug persists in latest nightly, too:

Is there anything in the error console? Does this reproduce on Windows or mac? Does the site work if you set dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to false?

WFM on Windows 7 with Flash 11.1.102.55.

Also WFM on Linux 64-bit with Flash 10.2 d161
WFM on a different 32-bit machine, running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit with Flash 11.1 r102
Also WFM on my 64-bit Laptop running Ubuntu 11.04, with Flash 11.0 r1
I wonder what's special about the machine I reported this from (my work desktop). Investigating more...
My work desktop (where I can repro this) is running Flash 11.1 r102, FWIW.

> Is there anything in the error console?

Nothing plugin-related.  Just a bunch of CSS-related complaints for other-browser-specific style, followed by "Error: uncaught exception: Error: Permission denied for <http://www.facebook.com> to get property Proxy.InstallTrigger"

> Does the site work if you set dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to false?

Yes, that fixes it.

Same problem here.
dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to false fix the problem.

Aha -- that laptop was running a one-off version of Flash that I downloaded myself and installed to ~/.mozilla/plugins.

I've replaced that with the Ubuntu "flashplugin-installer" package (w/ package version '11.0.1.152ubuntu1' which translates to Flash 11.1 r102 in about:plugins), and now I can reproduce on that laptop, too.
Did some targeted builds for further isolation of the problem cset.

So this was regressed by:

I have the same problem: with out-of-process plugins enabled, Bandcamp fails in the same way dholbert described; with them disabled it works as expected. Flash version as reported by dpkg -s flashplugin-installer is 11.1.102.55ubuntu0.11.10.1, Firefox is Mozilla/5.0 (Ubuntu; X11; Linux x86_64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0, both the versions used by an up-to-date Ubuntu 11.10 install.

Resolving old bugs which are likely not relevant any more, since NPAPI plugins are deprecated.
