Fox (8 .0 .1) on OSX 10 .7 .2 concludes that Quick Time plugin needs additional plugins to play an mp4 file
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:8.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0.1 Build ID: 20111120135848 Steps to reproduce: Play a mp4 files. In its simplist form. Just a link to a stored .mp4 on a webserver Actual results: FireFox 8.0.1 on OSX 10.7.2 concludes I need a quicktime extension to play the sound, while the application setting shows that a mp4 file is played by quicktime while the same FF version on a XP system does play the file. Chrome, Safari and Opera are all capable of playing that file with QuickTime on OSX 1.7.2 Expected results: It should play the file as the mime type is properly communicated and the file is completely loaded. Other file types like .mov are properly played.

This is probably a dup of bug 670036, which was fixed by the patch for bug 687610. This patch in current (9.0 branch) betas, and in current aurora and mozilla-central nightlies. It *isn't* in FF 8.0 or 8.0.1, but will be in FF 9. The workaround is to empty your network cache before loading (or especially reloading) any QuickTime media. Or use Command-Shift-r to reload the page that contains the media.
