My understanding is that if the URL points to the InfoPath XML file it will try to open it in the InfoPath client if it can. The library setting to open in the browser just affects the link you get in the libarary, not the Document ID redirect URL.

It probably "works" in Firefox because that browser doesn't understand the InfoPath client integration ActiveX control (or whatever it uses in IE).
