After upgrading to Quicktime 7.6.4(PRO) on my PPC MAC G4 w/OS 10.4.11, the embedded H.264 video on my personal web page only loads audio; video does not load. If, however, I open a new tab and then go back to the original tab, the video loads and plays without a problem. 

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open firefox, paste web address and load page:  

2. click on picture to load Quicktime file (only audio loads)

3. create new tab

4. click/go back to original tab, video now appears as loaded and plays.
Actual Results:  
I estimate the the problem has occured over 90% of the time.

Expected Results:  
The video should load in its entirety without any problems. 

The version of Firefox I have installed on my computer uses the Foxdie Graphite add-on.

I'm seeing this as well as a number of other users submitted via Input:

This look like its only being seen by those on OSX though. We might just need to ask Apple to not deliver h.264 videos to their site for Firefox.
