    I have been having troubles with Quicktime and streaming movie files (Mov i assume).

    the main mov streaming movies i watch are on the apple trailer site.
    i get the infamous faded Q with a white questionmark.
    i am using FireFox with Quicktime 7.1.3
    i have checked About:plugins and it shows Quicktime to be installed correctly.
    i have noticed that when i go into hte Quicktime Mime Settings and go to Miscellaneous and Quicktime HTML is unticked. if i tick it with Firefox closed, and then close the prefpane i can usually watch maybe 1 trailer and then the check box in the mime settings will become unticked. and i have to repeat the whole process (Close firefox > Tick QHTML > Watch Trailer > Repeat).

    i have tried everything, google, searched this forum and a number of others and i could find no answers for my problem. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Your's is a known problem. I have suffered it myself. It is not limited to Firefox. However, it seems to have suddenly disappeared. I am not sure why, but the clear-up was coincident with the removal of the VLC-daily Internet plug-in and [possibly] some third-party QuickTime codec.
