That actually sounds like Contact is just failing to load the initial
stream; that's probably worth reporting as a bug.  It may expect you to
provide "src" in a "param" element; e.g.:

        <object data="your.wrl" ... >
          <param name="src" value="your.wrl" >

If this is the case, it's not a problem with Firefox; rather, it's the
plug-in not using NPAPI (the plug-in API) correctly.
