This has nothing to do with that, it turns out, but rather with the
eww-use-external-browser-for-content-type variable.  The URL redirects
to something with "Content-Type: audio/mpeg", and that matches that
variable, so it opens Firefox.

I think that that's really confusing, though.  It should just render it
as a link, and then people can do what they want with it...
