Firefox 3, QuickTime Plugin

Q: Firefox 3, QuickTime Plugin

Does anyone have trouble installing quicktime plugin for firefox3?
It tells me that the "Install Missing Plugin" I click on it, it fails, but gives me the option to manually install it. which i did.
When i go back on the site, it still sais missing plugin.

Is there a solution to have it working?

Preferred Solution: Firefox 3, QuickTime Plugin

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Running Firefox, when I try to access a video clip that works with Quicktime in IE7, Firefox acts like it doesn't know what to do with the clip. Following links to the plugin takes me to the Apple download page but I've already got Quicktime Pro 7.4.5 installed, yet Firefox doesn't find a plugin. Can anyone advise?

Firefox keeps nagging me to install Quicktime plugin when I am on facebook and receiving chats. Windows 7 has the ability to do what quicktime was needed for, how do I get Firefox to use the build in capability and stop nagging me to install Quicktime? I don't like Apple software.

A:Firefox Quicktime Plugin

It's because Facebook had the smart idea to replace or add a mp3 file for the popup sound when you get a message. Not sure if they actually replaced the swf file that had the sound in it, but I sometimes get the same error message with Firefox asking for Quicktime and sometimes not... and I never installed quicktime or Itune on Windows 7.

look around on google for mp3 and facebook chat, you'll find plenty of people complaining for the same problem. fixed it by blocking the mp3 file using Adblock here.

A:I have Quicktime installed but Firefox keeps saying I'm missing a plugin.

Type about:plugins in the Firefox address bar. Scroll down to QuickTime Plug-in. What version is it, and what is the .dll filename? Is there more than one entry for this plugin?

First let me tell you my setup.
OS: Windows 7 Home Edition (64 bit version)
Browser: Firefox 3.5.7

Now let me explain my problem. I have installed the latest version of Quicktime on my computer, and it automatically installed the QT plugin for Firefox. The plugin will play online MP3 files with no problem at all in the audio, but instead a problem in the player control onscreen display. You know how it displays a play button, and positon slider, etc, in a little embeded QT control box on the screen when an onlien MP3 file is loaded in as the page? Well my little QT control box is COMPLETELY BLACK, with no visible controls at all. The actual standalone QT player has no problems though. I took a screencap of the problem and uploaded to Photobucket so you can see for yourself what the problem is exactly. Picture is FULL screen size so it won't fit in the forums embedded. I've instead linked to it here for you to see.

You have Quicktime set to play Flash media. Open Quicktime, either from Control Panel or Start Menu. Click on File Types tab, click the + beside Miscellaneous and make sure that the box is not checked beside Flash media. Apply and OK. Restart your browser and see if it works. You may have to down load Flash Player if you don't have it.

I have a problem in my server which involves combination Firefox+QuickTime plug-in. Namely, our web server provider moved their servers and now uses DirectAdmin, though still Apache. And after that QuickTime plugin on Firefox plays .mp3 files only for about 4 seconds. Everything is fine on IE and mp3's are fully functional (and lasting much longer than 4 sec ).
The problem seems to be serverside, because no user with these applications is able to listen these audio files. I have tried to add MIME type to Apache (audo/mpeg .mp3) with no result. I guess solution might include some server configuring or adding scripts to server, but unfortunately I lack knowledge in that area.
If anyone is familiar with that issue, any suggestions would be great.

Best regards,

Baisically I have the following problem: Whenever I attempt to download any files that can be played with apple quicktime player, quicktime somehow manages to have the file streamed instead making it impossible to actually download the file.
It is worth mentioning that I only use firefox. (God knows what i did to my internet explorer, but it does not work.)

I was going to suggest you uninstall quicktime and install quicktime alternative instead, but I just noticed Apple seems to have requested all links to that great program to be removed.
I hate it when they do that... but hey, it's their right
I haven't yet found statements that it had been judged illegal so you can still try to find quicktime alternative elsewhere (they still have it on free-codecs.com). Any moderator remove this line if you find it goes against the forum rules.

What's your current version of QuickTime ? Since when do you have that problem ? Were you able to play those videos correctly before ?

I am going to a website and downloading a .tiff file that I would like to save to my hard drive. I have a new computer, and on this system when I click on the link to open the file it starts a java script and opens in a new browser window. It loads with a quicktime plugin and there is nothing I can do with this picture. I cannot right click and save (that just brings up the quicktime options) and when I try to print it gives me a blank page with just the header and footer info.

I tried opening this file on my older computer, and the other computer downloads the file and opens the .tiff in paint shop pro, which I had set to handle those file types. I checked Tools, Internet Options, Advanced to see if there was something in there that I could check/uncheck to make my new computer handle the tiff files differently. That's when I came across the "Manage Add-ons" and starting looking through the plugins. My old computer had some java plugins and an adobe acrobat plugin that the new computer did not have. I went to those websites and downloaded their files to install the plugins. This still did not work. If I disable the quicktime plugin the tiff file comes up as a red x and there is a link at the bottom to manage the add-ons.

How do I get another plugin to handle the tiff files or have quicktime stop interferring with the files? I right-clicked on the tiff file and it opens the quicktime options, which I unchecked the box for it ... Read more

A:Quicktime Plugin In Internet Explorer

Check your file association by right clicking on the Tiff file and looking at Properties. If the association is not what you want, you can change it from that dropdown menu; be sure, after choosing, that you check the little box at the bottom so all files of that type are changed.

I have windows xp, and today I tried to download a video file from the web onto my desktop as a shortcut. The file went through a synchronization process, which to me, should have meant that the video file would have been viewable offline if I clicked a desktop shortcut. However, the video simply became embedded on my desktop without a shortcut, so that it wants to play everytime I come out of sleep or hibernate or restart my computer. There's no way to delete it, and I can't find the file anywhere on my computer. It's not as if it's listed under desktop files, it's just part of my desktop now. It's an mp4 file, if that helps. What to do?

So I've confirmed that it's not just my computer that has issues with quicktime playback in vista. If you have vista+firefox+adblock plus(extension)+quicktime, then you likely will not be able to play embedded quicktime videos (either crash browser or get illegal operations). If you disable the adblock plus in the "add ons", it works fine. Now I'm not sure if the problem is with the quicktime plugin or the adblock plus. For now I've disabled adblock plus and installed adblock instead, not as good, but at least it blocks the evil intellitxt with some configuration. Just thought I'd share what I found since I believe this is a common problem. If you want some quicktime to test your playback, go to apple.com/getamac and view some quicktime videos. I'm not sure if this combination always causes this issue, but it did on a new install of vista as well as on my machine. I know xp works fine when using ff+adblock plus to play quicktime. Any comments welcome to further discuss the cause or if you are having the same problem.

On certain websites that use the Quicktime plugin the Quicktime video doesn't work in Firefox 1.0. It tells me that additional plugins are required to view the media, and tells me I need Quicktime 6.5.1. I click it and it says it's not available. I already have Quicktime 6.5.1 on my computer and I'm using Windows 2000 Pro.

I went to about: plugins and here's what it said about Quicktime:

File name: npqtplugin.dll
The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in Web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site.

MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
application/sdp SDP stream descriptor file sdp Yes
application/x-sdp SDP stream descriptor file sdp Yes
application/x-rtsp RTSP stream descriptor file rtsp,rts Yes
video/quicktime QuickTime Movie mov,qt Yes

So finally I went to manual install a the Quicktime website, despite the fact that I already have Quicktime 6.5.1. The download page doesn't come up and where it says "Your download will start automatically. If it does not, click this link:", there's no link! What's up with that?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's run into this - anyone know how to fix it?

A:Firefox crashing (plugin container for firefox has stopped working)

Go to Index page ? mozillaZine Forums ; on the right-side of the screen, in the search box for Boards, enter "plugin container crashes" (without the quotation marks) and read some of the threads, which may lead you to the solution.

My quick look at a few of those threads indicated that hardware acceleration may be the culprit; if you need help with that, do another search for that subject.

There was an amusing incident on mozillaZine recently concerning hardware acceleration: One person posted a vituperative message blaming the moderators for frequently suggesting turning off hardware acceleration on the grounds that doing that had never helped a single person.

The very next thread I read was from a person thanking the moderators: He had been told to try turning off hardware acceleration, he did so, and his problem was solved.

I was having problems with too high physical memory usage(highest was 73%) causing my PC to respond slower even during winexplore. I started uninstalling unnecessary programs and disabling unnecessary processes, when I noticed that plugin-container.exe is taking up 23,xxx KB memory while firefox takes up 400,xxxKB.

Recently I added a plug-in for Firefox that enabled it to act as does Internet Explorer. (I believe it permits active X content on Firefox but not absolutely sure) Unfortunately, my hard drive died and I had to replace it, losing all information on that drive. I have reloaded everything, except for that plugin, which I cannot recall the name of and cannot find. I have an insulin pump for my diabetes that requires Internet Explorer to load and review blood glucose values. I am one of those that absolutely hates internet Explorer. I have had to use it with my pump until I installed that plugin for Firefox. The plugin worked great. Does anyone out there know the name of it, or where I can download it? Thanks very much.

Recently when I use Firefox to surf on the Internet, I always have like 5-6 tabs opened. After 5-10 minutes, the browser is running very slowly and sometimes at the top bar it says (Not Responding). It is like a performance drop, changing tabs is slow, scrolling down a page is slow. I check the Task Manager it uses like 1907.23 MB of Memory and it shows 99% of Memory used.

I always have to end the Firefox process and open it again and restore my last session. It always use 150-180 MB of Memory at the first minute. But the longer I keep Firefox open, even on Minimize, my computer slows down and again it use 99% of Memory so I have to end process again. This happens over and over again. And when I check my Crash Dumps folder, I saw a lot of plugin-container dump files.

So how do I solve this issue? It's not a big deal though but I want a solution.

EDIT: Firefox is my preferred browser, I don't really like Chrome and not to mention Internet Explorer.

A:Firefox plugin-container

First, make sure you have the latest version of Firefox ie. 38.01
Next, right click on the Title, and select Menu Bar. From the Menu, click on Help->Restart With Add-Ons disabled to see if you experience the same problem.

If the problem is gone then go to Tools->Menu->Add-ons and disable all the add-ons then re-enable one by one until you experience the same problem then you might have a bad add-on.

If the the problem still persist. Tools->Options and create a SYNC account and sign-in. This will save all your Bookmarks, Add-ons etc...
then uninstall Firefox completely.

Next, download and install Firefox again then sign in to SYNC to get back all bookmarks, add-ons etc...
