In my previous OS, Tiger, I was able to preview audio files right in Finder and could skip ahead using the play "bar."
Now in Lion that bar is gone, replaced by a square icon with a progress circle that is not at all movable.
Is there a way to get back to the older "bar" version?
ML is the same, no progression bar. There are no options to show the bar in View/Show View Options. So for now, I'd say it's gone. You can always send Apple Feedback
