Anyone seen this? I sent an MP3 file. Clicked on the sent mail to view it as I for some reason often do...and an MP3 player popped up. Screenshot to follow.

It is old and new.
The MP3 player is old and the pop up function is new (I saw that yesterday).
IMO, it's less convenient.

The player has always opened in a pop up. Really (some screenshots: http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=%2Bgmail+%22mp3+player%22&btnG=Search+Images).

And there's a good reason behind this: you can check other messages while listening to the audio.
