I can confirm this. I think though it could have to do with the server on the other side. If the file gets downloaded in the same moment firefox cannot establish a new connection in the same time to access the same file or so?

Changed in firefox-3.0:
status: New → Confirmed

Oh, i didn't know that would download something, i thought we had to use right click and 'Save link As' before the music started?

If I click 'Save link as' on the link to the music file it works. Only if I open the music file with a normal click and want to save the file then, it fails.
