Leaving the browser running for an extended period of time leads to Quicktime
movies being unable to be displayed in the browser, clicking on their links
produces the broken link symbol from Quicktime (which is the movie file icon
with a tear through it).  Quiting and restarting the browser resolves the issue
until the next time it occurs.  Also happens with Mozilla 1.7.3, I think this
started from version 1.5 or later...

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open browse to Apple trailers page
2. watch the trailers each day by opening them in tabs
3. close tabs when you are finished with them
4. refresh the main Apple Trailers page daily so you can see when new trailers
5. watch them until you get the QT broken link/movie symbol, should be between
7-14 days

Actual Results:  
QuickTime movie portal appears but with the broken link movie symbol

Expected Results:  
QuickTime portal should populate with movie and allow you to play it.
