MozillaFirebird Can't Handle Streaming Audio?

Hey all. A friend of mine recently installed netjuke and gave me a username and password to check it out. I ran over to his site and clicked on one of the songs to play but MozillaFirebird would only let me download the file. I then fired up Mozilla(No Firebird just plain old Mozilla) and it allowed me to 'Open Program With' so I used XMMS. It works great in Mozilla but Firebird doesn't give me any option.

I love Firebird because its so straight forward and doesn't have all the frills that Mozilla has but sometimes it just doesn't cut it.

Any suggestions?

Never had a problem playing a music file in Firebird. When you click on a link to a file and firebird doesn't know what to do with it, it will ask you if you want to open it or save it. To open it, simply select the path to the application you want to use. (For xmms, I think it is /usr/bin/xmms.)

If you haven't got the option to open the file, may be you can try to grab one of the latest firebird build? Which one are you using at the moment?
