    Used to be I could double-click on a QT movie, watch it (in the QuickTime player), and CMD-Q quit QT. Then sometime later, double-click on another QT movie to watch. Now, every movie I have watched comes back when I start QuickTime player.
    I know I can close the current movie with the red-dot, but is there any way to get back to the old method of closing QuickTime without it remembering previous movie? Some thing happens with TextEdit.

    You can turn that off in System Prefs -> General -> Number of recent Items . . uncheck the box "Restore windows when quitting . . . ".

    Or you can adopt Apple's new philosophy of not worrying about closing apps but instead on closing content. For example, don't Quit Quicktime as a method of closing all your windows, instead close all your windows (CMD+OPTION+W -- or one at a time CMD+W) and forget about Quicktime. If it's inactive long enough or if OSX needs the resources, it will quit that process.
