In which application is this a problem ? You claim it happens when you receive an IM (= instant message). But Mozilla doesn't have a IM application. Don't you mean email (Thunderbird) ?

Moving to Firefox/General in the mean time, this isn't a Disability Access bug.

Sounds like the Quicktime plugin is trying to play Flash files. To resolve this, open the QuickTime pane of the System Preferences and ensure that Flash Media is unchecked in the MIME Settings sheet of the Advanced tab of that preference pane. Then delete the pluginreg.dat from your Firefox profile (in a subfolder of ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox).

The above is really just a guess given the poor summary/description.

This bug is INVALID or INCOMPLETE, given the lack of information. I choose INCOMPLETE.

Ever since I upgraded my QuickTime Pro Windows software to version 7.2, though it still lets me copy video and audio clips, whenever I use Firefox, I have this same problem with at least half of all websites I visit, like hotmail, imdb.com, youtube and many more. That is, this large faded quicktime icon with a question mark comes on. I have a Pentium IV 3.2GHz pc with 1GB RAM, yet this bug really slows it down. I've tried disabling a number of features in QuickTime, but nothing gets rid of this icon-nor did downloading the 11/3/07 Firefox upgrade. It seems that Firefox is the problem, since this icon never appears when I use the Windows IE browser. Is there yet a fix for this problem?
