Ok so I've finally diagnosed whats going on here.  Mozilla uses a "database" of
sorts for small elements in the cache (<4k according to 
netwerk/cache/src/nsDiskCacheMap.h in the mozilla source).  If the plugin
requests the object and its never been seen before, it will skip this cache and
make a direct file for it.  However if the browser sees the object first, it
will stick it into this shared cache.  Then when we request the element,
StreamAsFile is never called because it doesn't have a file object.

We're going to have to remove our usage of StreamAsFile and write all
downloaders ourselves because we cannot trust that mozilla will actually give
us a file.

This affects ff2 and ff3

I have a sample up at:


Make sure you clear your cache before visiting.
