User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

At Merriam-Webster Online (http://www.m-w.com/) when I try to listen to a word
there is a message bar at the top that says "additional plugins are required to
display all the media on this page - install missing plugins" So I click on
install missing plugins and it says "following plugins are available - Apple
Quicktime 6.5.1" I click next to install but I get this message "Firefox
finished installing the missing plugins: Apple Quicktime 6.5.1 - Not Available -
Manual Install" So I click on Manual Install and it takes me to the Apple
Quicktime website where I check off what I need for the download and click
download. It then takes me to the next page that says "Congratulations - Your
download will start automatically. If it does not, click this link: ." Well
there isn't a link, just a period. I check to see if I can hear the sound at
Merriam-Webster Online but it still gives me the same message that additional
plugins are required. 

This isn't the first time I've had this problem with a website. Though I can
play the movie trailers at quicktime without a problem. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I click on install missing plugins
2. I check off available plugins Apple Quicktime 6.5.1 and click next.
3. Message says Firefox finished installing the missing plugins: Apple Quicktime
6.5.1 - Not Available. Manual Install.
4. I click manual install which takes me to the apple quicktime website. 
5. I follow the instructions for downloading and click download.
6. Message says congratulations - Your download will start automatically. If it
does not, click this link: .
7. There isn't any link to click and the download doesn't start. 
Actual Results:  
The player doesn't install, though it seems that the player is installed because
quicktime player trailers will play. But the sound still won't play at
Merriam-Webster Online, it still tells me that I need aditional plugins. 

Expected Results:  
Downloading box for installing quicktime. 

First time user with Firefox, so everything is set at default.

Your bug is with Firefox, not with Bugzilla, so setting the product (and, I 
hope, the component) appropriately.
Component: Bugzilla-General → Plugin Finder Service
Product: Bugzilla → Firefox

I'm not sure what I am to do now? Do I forward my problem some place else
(plugin.finder@firefox.bugs)? I tried reinstalling the plugin again today, but
the same thing still happens.

I see a link there, is this still a problem for you? You can also navigate to
that download (URL) under http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/standalone/

I'm having the same problem. The link is there for clicking, and the program
installs correctly, 

<i>but the plugin still does not register.</i>

So now I have Quicktime 7 installed, but firefox doesn't know its there. I tried
reinstalling quicktime, firefox, re-downloading an old version of quicktime, but
nothing works. I can hear no sound from my webpages.

also, could you change the subject to include the word quicktime? it makes it
easier to find.
