That is an issue with an embed container that uses type="text/html" and that doesn't work with Firefox.

<embed height="200" width="460" style="overflow: hidden" type="text/html" scrollbars="no" src="http://pages.email<i></i>.telegraph<i></i>.co<i></i>.uk/page.aspx?QS=2e4c31a3756cb94055431b810b2ec2cf6bfd7f13bf80456f59d89233488b9ea1"></embed>

A possible bookmarklet to change this embed to an iframe:

javascript:(function(){var cE='iframe',eE=document.querySelectorAll('embed');for(i=0;E=eE[i];i++){N=document.createElement(cE);for(j in E.attributes){A=E.attributes[j];if((A.name!=undefined)&&(A.value!=undefined)){N.setAttribute(A.name,A.value)}}E.parentNode.replaceChild(N,E)}})()
