Am I do something wrong or this is a bug in firefox. could anyone help?

Hi Hussam,

SVGs unfortunately are not supported on all browsers. Please make sure you have updated your Firefox to the latest version - it's not an issue with your SVG file, it has to do with browser compatibility. Unless you need to scale this in your webpage, I would export this out of Illustrator as another format, perhaps GIF.
