Firefox won't install Quicktime Plugin

I have Firefox 1.5.  It was linked to Quicktime.

I also have Realtime and Windows Media Player.

I had to remove Quicktime because it was interferring with some tasks.

Now when I reinstall it,  Firefox will not see it.

It keeps asking me to get the plugin (Manual)

Can anyone help?

Have you seen this page from the Mozillazine KB's about Quicktime?
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Quicktime  When installing Quicktime, Firefox should be closed.

Greetings, glenn_1984 !

Download the latest version of Quicktime plugin.  Make sure it is compatible with Firefox 1.5.0.1.  Then install the plugin with the antivirus active scan disabled.

Best wishes!

Seems like the various plugins are interfering. Uninstall the Realtime and Windows Media Player plugins.  Then install Quicktime.  Then the other two.

How did you 'remove Quicktime' It looks like you have only partially removed it, and the leftovers now interfere with reinstalling it.

best way is usually through add/remove programs in the control panel.

So others can see,  can you specify which one seemed to help?  Was it the updated Quicktime or the way you might have reinstalled or the actual settings of the Quicktime browser settings and MIME Settings?  There was a lot of info on that page.  Was it any one thing in particular or was it just the entire page?
