Whenever I try to access certain sites in FireFox, a window pops up saying that I need to install QuickTime as a plugin. Usually, FireFox will find and download plugins automatically. However, for some reason I have to install it manually, but have no idea of how to do so. If anyone knows how to install FireFox plugins manually, please help. Thanks.

    The regular QuickTime install should install a plug-in that works with all of your browsers. Maybe something went wrong and re-installing the software would help.

    The link above doesn't include the iTunes software.

    Hello -
    I was experiencing the same problem as Fenris and used the link provided to download and install. Rather than solving my problem, the application uninstalled Quicktime for Windows. That wasn't what I'd expected, but nothing else was being offered, so...

    I have sufficient drive space and all programs updated. I'm using Windows XP home. Normally, I use a Firefox plugin that regulated Java but it was disabled for the download and installation. I don't need/want anything other than Quicktime and its plugin, (I don't know if that makes a difference) and finding help is taking quite a bit of time - am I looking in the correct area?

    Thank you,
    Seven654

    Have a look at http://www.msiwisdom.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=43&Itemid=2

    If you deploy QuickTime and you want to use it from within Firefox, you will get a notification about a missing Firefox plugin. This is QuickTime related. You can solve it manually by going into Control Panel, QuickTime, click on the Browser Tab, MIME settings and then click on 'Use Defaults' the integration is available after you restart Firefox. What this option does is copying a couple of QuickTime related files into your Firefox program files directory:

    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components\nsIQTScriptablePlugin.xpt

    and

    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin.dll
    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin2.dll
    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin3.dll
    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin4.dll
    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin5.dll
    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin6.dll
    c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\npqtplugin7.dll
