When using Firefox: QuickTime failed to initialize. Error # 0

I've encountered the following problem on a system running Firefox on Windows XP: when you try to run a podcast, the following error message comes up:

QuickTime failed to initialize. Error # 0
Please make sure QuickTime is properly installed on this computer.

That's in one dialog box. After clicking OK, another dialog box comes up, with the message
The plug-in performed an illegal operation. You are strongly advised to restart Firefox.

This started happening after the latest update to FireFox was installed.  I tried reinstalling Firefox and the plugin.  Same result.

Hello jsgreiner,

If you have not already done so, download and install the latest Quicktime. Make sure you have all the latest updates.

Hope this helps!

Lastest update to Firefox should not have cause such problem.

Create a new Firefox profile and test if QuickTime works

jsgreiner,

What security programs do you have installed?  
And confirm you have version 7.3 of Quicktime installed.

And double check it installed properly at Apple's site.
