Quicktime 7.1.6
Firefox 2.0.0.4
Vista Ultimate 32bit

Everytime I try to access a webpage with quicktime mov files, firefox crashes (apple.com/trailers). I am not sure how to get around this? Any ideas.

PS: It doesnt happen in IE7.

Some research was done by the Firefox people and it appears to be a Quicktime bug.

Easiest solution is to go to Tools/ Options/ Content/ File Types/ Manage and then change the action for MPEG files to WMPLayer.exe instead of the plugin. This will play .mpg and .mpeg files instead in Windows Media Player and voila, no more crashes to deal with.
Hopefully QT will fix their bug in the future.

QuickTime also has a recently-discovered, severe security vulnerability. You need to update to the latest version, if you have not already done so.

I uninstalled and reinstalled both but had the same problem. Also tried the manage file types thing, but it did not make a difference.

Finally got it to work by uninstalling quicktime and installing the previous version 1.7.5 and now no problems. i think it must be the new quicktime!
