I recently upgraded to Mac Lion and now find that I can not play .mp3 files embedded in web pages if viewed in Firefox.  The same pages play okay in the same version of Firefox if running on SL10.6.8, or in Safari or Chrome on the Lion machine.  I have checked the plugins list in Firefox and it shows that Quicktime is installed and enabled.  I was also able to stream and watch videos (with audio) from the Apple web site.  I just can't get embedded .mp3 files to play on a web play in Firefox.  Any ideas?

    No idea for the fix, but I'm having the same issue. Quicktime works fine in Safari, but not Firefox. I've tried installing the latest version of QT7, and I've run out of software updates. This is a recent issue for me as well, since I was watching trailers.apple.com without problems less than a week ago.

    Same problem here.  Firefox does not display the QuickTime plugin controls for MP3 files (there may be others as well).  Loading the web page in Safari or Chrome works great.

    I have scoured the internet looking for a way to play MP3 files right in the browser window and have come up with nothing. Firefox does not let me set MP3 files to play with the QuickTime Plugin but instead I can only have them play in iTunes or QuickTime after a download. Pretty much same with Chrome and Safari. Neither will let me just play the MP3 right in the browser. Please help!
