No, this is a setting to be made in the user agent (=browser).

If the browser is set to immediate playback (e.g. a browser plugin
claims the mp3 file and plays it), or the browser is set to pass mp3
files (actually, this should read "audio/mpeg" files) to a player,
there's nothing the server could do about it.

In the Mozilla suite, those setting are made via "helper applications".
Unfortunately, the possibility to make those settings manually in the
preferences menu is limited in the dumbed down Firefox (you noticed I
don't like FF? ;-).

If http://miniprep.caltech.edu/~remote/blog/?p=72 doesn't work (e.g. if
you can't find audio/mpeg in that list), I recommend asking what to do
about it in a FF newsgroup.
