Red face Quicktime Plugin Problems

I recently have experianced some difficulties displaying .swf format files in Firrefox (nav bars etc...) It displays a broken quicktime movie box, it seems as if quicktime is trying to handle it but cant. I sownloaded Macromedia flash player but it still doesnt work. .swf files work in Opera and IE but not in firefox.

Any suggestions?

Yeah, when you download the Flash Player, Firefox can be a bit funny and not install it in the right place.

It'd have to be transferred to C:\Program Files, Mozilla, Firefox, Plugins, to work.

If you go to Tools, Options, then select the Download tab at the side, and select the Plugins button at the bottom left, you can check if its installed it.

I hope this helps.

It says it is installed (.swf) What files shoukd I transfere to the plugins folder. At the moment the only files in my plugins folder that I would associate withflash are:
flashplayer.xpt
GetFlash
GetFlash.exe.manifest

yeah, thats what I have, so it should work :s

I have no idea why Quicktime is trying to use them.

Open Quicktime and go into settings, turn off the file assosiation to play swf movies, and then restart your pc. You never know.

I hope this helps

Ah, in that case, uninstall Firefox, install it again with the latest version

Flash for firefox is downloaded via an installer on the desktop.
You'll have to double click it and follow the instructions.
Don't try to download it from IE.

Flash for firefox isnt downloaded via an installer at all, you download it form macromedia.com like any other browser.

If the flash player is not working then you might have disabled it. Do you have a Firewall on your computer if so which is it?

If you download this link it should install ok for FireFox:

http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/...ShockwaveFlash

One last question is it just the one site you have tested if the answer is yes then go onto other websites with Flash.
