when I ran a plugin check using Firefox, the QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.6 came up as 'vulnerable' under 'outdated plugins', but as far as I know, this is the latest version available to Snow Leopard. why is Mozilla indicating that the plugin is outdated if it really isn't, or am I missing something important? thanks for clearing this up for me!

    They are not correct!

     

    Check with Software Update. If no newer version of Quicktime appears, you are up to date.

    Some "clarification," of the foggy kind, here.

    QuickTime is version 10 on OS X 10.6.8

     

    Since Apple maintains it via Software Update, your fine there.

     

     

    Don't know why the site can't check for the version, perhaps it's something Apple is doing to protect Quicktime better.

    But the plug-in, not the app, remains at 7.6.6.

    Quicktime Player 7 for Snow Leopard OS 10.6 available here:

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL923

     

    Mac OS X 10.6 includes QuickTime versions 10.0 and 7.6.3. The QuickTime 7 player will only be present if a QuickTime Pro key was present at the time of installation, or if specified as part of a custom install, or individually downloaded:

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/dl923

     

    Snow Leopard update 10.6.4 included an update to 7.6.6 (if installed). You can install it from the above link  even though it says for 10.6.3. It's the same version of QuickTime Player 7.6.6.

     

    (Only QuickTime Player 7.6.3 or 7.6.6 can be updated to "Pro".)

     

    A Mac OS X v10.6, OS X Lion, and OS X Mountain Lion-compatible version of QuickTime Player 7 is available for use with older media or with AppleScript-based workflows. QuickTime Player 7 can be used to playback formats such as QTVR, interactive QuickTime Movies, and MIDI files. Also, it supports QuickTime 7 Pro registration codes for access to QuickTime Pro functionality.

    How to install Quicktime Player 7 on Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion when it is not already present:

    so, this is a bug that mozilla needs to fix? I find this annoying seeing as though they also marked Shockwave and Java as out of date (these are currently up to date!) but mozilla has yet to fix the problem... so, i should just ignore the error then?

    This appears to be a bug with mozilla not apple or adobe!
