GStreamer is no longer used and hasn't been for a good while now. You need ffmpeg or at least libav.

What about libav-tools? Do you have that installed?

Use a web browser to play local mp3 files? Wrong tool for the job.

This has nothing to do with MSE.
I think the problem is that you're trying to play a local file. A local file doesn't have a MIME type, so it will try to use whatever the file extension tells Pale Moon the type is. The error message indicates that the helper application for the file type doesn't exist -- check Options -> Applications in Pale Moon to see if *.mp3 is set correctly there.
