Unless you installed a Firefox PowerPoint Viewer add-on, Firefox is probably not using the correct program to open Powerpoint files because the extension has the wrong program associated with it. Go to Tools>Options>Applications tab and check what program is associated with the file type trying to be open.

PowerPoint Viewer: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/48971/

Might be relevant: firefox cannot display powerpoint .pps file [support.mozilla.com]
