Windows 7: Quicktime plugin for Firefox not fully working

Quicktime plugin for Firefox not fully working

First let me tell you my setup.
OS: Windows 7 Home Edition (64 bit version)
Browser: Firefox 3.5.7

Now let me explain my problem. I have installed the latest version of Quicktime on my computer, and it automatically installed the QT plugin for Firefox. The plugin will play online MP3 files with no problem at all in the audio, but instead a problem in the player control onscreen display. You know how it displays a play button, and positon slider, etc, in a little embeded QT control box on the screen when an onlien MP3 file is loaded in as the page? Well my little QT control box is COMPLETELY BLACK, with no visible controls at all. The actual standalone QT player has no problems though. I took a screencap of the problem and uploaded to Photobucket so you can see for yourself what the problem is exactly. Picture is FULL screen size so it won't fit in the forums embedded. I've instead linked to it here for you to see.

did you check to see if the plugin is compatible with this last version of firefox? even if it is, try using firefox 3.5 and install the plugin manually before you install QT software

Apple's site does NOT offer the plugin by itself. It only offers a download for the complete Quicktime software. Do you know how to get the plugin by itself?

You have to download and install Quicktime to have the plug-in for Firefox.

Hi, The only way I can make Quicktime or QT Lite work with Firefox on W7 x64 is to use the compatibility trick, but under 3.6b5, this trick disables the W7 thumbnail support. Does anyone know an alternative player that will stream QT stuff, or a way to make QT Lite work without the controls...

Native Quicktime Browser Plugin
Hey everyone, Isn't there supposed to be native support for quicktime in Windows 7? If I go to the movie trailers page on Apple I can't play any of the movies. Was support only added for for size movie downloads and no browser integration? Dave
