This is caused by different file name encoding:
Safari: http://image5.eastmoney.com/d1/200802/18-173X65-10K-SWF-%C2%B6%C2%AB%C2%B7%D0%85%D0%86%D0%96%D1%91%C2%BB%D0%9D%D1%88%D0%9A%D0%A7%D0%A2%D1%96%D0%A2%C2%BB%D0%96%D0%91%D0%A7%D1%83%C2%B0%D2%91%D0%95%D2%90.swf
Firefox: http://image5.eastmoney.com/d1/200802/18-173X65-10K-SWF-%B6%AB%B7%BD%B2%C6%B8%BB%CD%F8%CA%D7%D2%B3%D2%BB%C6%C1%D7%F3%B0%B4%C5%A5.swf

Newer browsers use UTF-8 when encoding the path, which is correct in accordance to rfc3987. In IE and Firefox, this is a configurable preference.

I think that this is WONTFIX, as I believe that such a configuration option would do more harm than good.

WONTFIX based on Alexey's comment, FireFox/Opera behaviour, no action in 3 years.
