Greetings,

Plugin Check (i.e. https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/) is indicating that the plugin for QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.3 is outdated and potentially vulnerable, but QuickTime 7 is _not_ installed on this system (i.e. QuickTime 7 is an optional install, which I did not select to install).  Rather, this system only has QuickTime X (default QuickTime install for Snow Leopard).  Should QuickTime X be treated as equal to QuickTime 7?

Not seeing any mention from Apple of re: an updated version for QuickTime X (as of 14 May 2010; see here -> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/
2. Plugin Check runs check on browser plug-ins
3. Review Plugin details to find possibly outdated version of Apple QuickTime plugin
Actual Results:  
Plugin Details  	Status  	Action
1 of 3 plugins are potentially vulnerable
Plugin Icon
		
Plugin Icon
QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.3
The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site. 	Outdated Version 	Update

Expected Results:  
As of right now, I am not sure what to make of QuickTime X as I am not clear if it is indeed susceptible to any and all vulnerabilities that may impact QuickTime 7 (i.e. version 7.6.3).  Hoping to clarify whether this is an issue, or not.

As requested, following are links to two screenshots re: QuickTime (one from the site http://ozten.com/random/perfidies/debug.html and the other a screenshot of the Mozilla Plugin Check site, https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/):

Mozilla's Plugin Check still indicates that the plugin is "outdated", but there does not appear to be any updates for QuickTime X (QuickTime Player is not installed on this system).  

One other strange finding...on another newly installed Mac OS X (10.6) system (i.e. installed the OS a few days ago), which also only has QuckTime X and not QuickTime Player installed, Mozilla's Plugin Check displays version 7.6.6 (i.e. current version) for the QuickTime Player plugin.  It appears that there may be a discrepancy with plugin versions as the system with the "outdated" plugin had the OS installed months earlier.  

Wondering if any of this needs to be brought to Apple's attention?

I am experiencing this same problem.

I have verified that I have the Quicktime 7.6.6 plugin installed, but FF still reports I have 7.6.3.

I recently re-installed the OS on this Mac, due to hard drive failure. This has been a problem from day 1.

Btw, there is no Quicktime X plugin as of today.

In the current version of Firefox 3.6.16's plugin checker at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/, Quicktime plugin version 7.6.6 is erroneously reported as outdated version 7.6.3.  However, version 7.6.6 is the correct, up-to-date version for Snow Leopard systems (OS X 10.6).  You should fix this because the plugin checker is a useful tool, but it wastes the time of Snow Leopard users.
