That is a .wav file.

Is .wav enabled for the QuickTime plugin on the about:plugins page?

You can open about: pages via the location bar like you open a website.

What happens if you paste the .wav URL in the location bar and press Enter (Return) or click the Go button?

Do you get a download dialog?

Does it work if you start Firefox as a 32 bit application?

  1. Close Firefox
  2. Start the Finder and open the Applications folder
  3. Right click or control-click the Firefox.app icon
  4. Select "Get Info"
  5. Select or Deselect "Open in 32-bit mode"
  6. Close the "Firefox Info" window
  7. Restart Firefox
