User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

An example on the above URL.  If you click on any of the "View Video" links and nothing happens.  If you try this in Internet Explorer, it opens up another window with a Quicktime window. Also, if I right click and select "Open Link in a new Window", nothing happens.  If I can right click and select "open Link in New Tab", it will just open the same window in a new tab.  In other instances, I have had it open the Quicktime video in a new tab but then there are no controls to pause/start the video.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on link that should open a Quicktime video window
2. If you hover over the link, it shows the url address on lower left
3. If you click on the link, nothing happens
Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
It should open a Quicktime video in a separate window

This problem started with 3.5 (it worked before).  Was not fixed with 3.5.1. I was hoping this problem would be solved in 3.5.1 but it wasn't and this is a biggy for me.

Can you please try the Firefox safemode ?

Worked in Firefox Safe Mode.  Determined it was the Skype extension that caused the problem. It also prevented Firefox from shutting down when I exited Firefox. I had to terminate Firefox via Windows Task Manager. Works great now that I have disabled that extension.
thanks for the response, marking invalid (addon issue)
