For some reason quicktime has decided it will be the viewer for flash on my machine. It started doing this when I installed Qt 7.2. I have scoured the internet looking for solutions. I have changed the mime settings in quicktime to where it should not play flash yet it still tries. I have also downloaded numerous flash plugins and players but to no avail. I have tried everything my limited computer diagnostic skills can do so now I am here begging for your help! I am using mozilla firefox by the way. Thank you for your time.

"What to do if QuickTime takes over handling Flash content

When you install QuickTime, or change your QuickTime settings, it may take over handling of Flash files. However, this can be fixed quite easily. To stop QuickTime from handling Flash files, do the following:

1. Close Mozilla (or Firefox)
2. Open the QuickTime Control Panel
3. Select "Browser Plug-in" from the dropdown menu
4. Open up the MIME Settings dialog
5. Make sure "Flash file" is not selected. This is listed under Miscellaneous.
6. Click OK, and close the QuickTime Control Panel
7. Remove the file pluginreg.dat from your Profile Folder. This file will be recreated next time you start Mozilla
8. Remove npqt*.dll from your Mozilla or Firefox plugins folder. These files are not required, and can cause problems when QuickTime is upgraded

After doing this, you may need to reinstall Flash Player. These instructions should be the same for both Windows and MacOS X, with the exception of the last step."
