Question firefox saying additional plugins needed; upon searching it hangs and fails

hey sup.. whenever a html file has code it in to play an embed sound source midi file firefox says

"additional plugins are required to display all media on the page" , then i click "install missing plugins" , and nothing gets found as it hangs looking for stuff

i just want to be able to hear midi's playing in the background of webpages...

Thanks for the heads-up re: mozplugger. Works fine, except it opens a blank Mozilla window which is weird. Something I'll iron out I guess.
