I've manually installed the Quicktime plugin, yet when I go to a site that has quicktime media, I still get the popup on the top of the screen saying "Firefox needs to install additional plugins" - and Firefox always lists Quicktime as the one I need to install. I checked the plugin settings and quicktime IS enabled, so I don't know whats wrong. Any ideas why?

Did you close all your FF browsers after you installed the plug-in then open a new FF browser to test it?

Not all plug-ins will let you just copy them over to a new profile so some you have to install again.

Yes after a new profile is made you have to reinstall some plugins.

If you are using 1.05, you need to upgrade to 1.06. There is a problem with 1.05 because it doesn't work with a lot of extensions.
