I think? this is a bug. 
I've tried workarounds, also I have not found during searching, any mention of
bugs related to this. 
But then as a(my) woman would say "It's not shouting, here I am, here I am!"

I do not appear to be able to view quicktime elements in any website.
I can see them with Satans browser IE 6 etc. 
I have downloaded the latest version of Quicktime, through Mozilla's link, and
this has made no difference.
I just see the placeholder "Q" icon.

Reproducible: Always

Expected Results:  
The quicktime images should be visible,and play.

I have not been using Firefox long, so I haven't F*(^ed about with any settings,
(if it aint broke don't tamper)

Can you post a screenshot? The items you refer to are flash items for me....
I think you may have a problem with your plugin handlers.

Created attachment 172702 [details]
screenshot as requested shows quicktime inserts, and the version no of quick time ( right click on the icons)

I've done something daft, but have not used Firefox for long enough to
determine what.

You're definitely routing flash objects to Quicktime [which they shouldn't]
Marking this bug as INVALID, as this is not a Mozilla or Firefox problem.

Can you look at http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/ for how to install Macromedia Flash
and try again?
