Firefox is a good choice as your main browser (One Man's Opinion)
What you should do is uninstall QuickTime from the Add/Remove Programs
After doing that, open Firefox, then gotohttp://www.free-codecs.com
and to the left side, look for and download QuickTime Alternative
.. then install it.
After doing that, open Firefox
, then gotohttp://www.apple.com
then click on the QuickTime
link. After you get to the page, all QuickTime content on that page should load. That will mean that QuickTime is installed. If it isn't installed, and you get to that page, you will get a message that you don't have QuickTime installed.
If for any reason you go to another site, and it says that you don't have QuickTime installed, just post a link to the video, because I don't have QuickTime either, but I don't get any errors about me not having it when I view videos online, including uTube.Tip:
Just because a site says that you need something doesn't mean that you actually do. I've had messages that told me such, but when I switched browsers I didn't get the messages.
If you don't have this Firefox
add on called IE Tab
... get it. It will allow you to switch from the Firefox engine to the IE engine, eliminating the need to actually open up IE.
