I have Firefox 1.5.0.4 that I use for direct Internet access (IE is proxied)sometimes at various websites instead of getting the graphic that I should, I get a quicktime icon or an "X" in a broken graphic icon. I have gone through the plug-ins and have downloaded and installed all sorts of plug-ins and yet it persists. Any one know what is going on?

That's a great link. None of it helped though and that's too bad becaiuse when I first saw what it was, I was very optimistic that it would. It's weird! The site that I'm testing on is the Google analytics site which I'm logged into and as I click on the various links along the left side of the window, nothing changes on the right-hand side.  I log into it with IE and everything works fine. Actually, FireFox was working fine with the site also, up until maybe a month ago and then it all of a sudden stopped working well with it.  My FireFox client does not display the graphics on some other sites also, so it's not just a problem with the Google site.

Check if a Firefox extension is interfering with the images.  Disable the extensions one by one.

Actually the four images on the first page that should be there are replaced by large "Q" icons with white question marks inside the Qs. When I right-click on them, i get a menu with the top item being, "about quicktime plug-in".

The problem could be the Quicktime plugin for Firefox.  Uninstall and then re-install the QuickTime plugin for Firefox from the Add/Remove Programs.

How do I disable them, or better yet how do I uninstall quicktime viewer?

GOT IT! I uninstalled Real Player and Quicktime both from the Control Panel/Add Remove Progarms and the images are appearing as they should be. Thanks for the help.

Stupid question on my part but I thought they had to be removed from within FireFox.
