Quicktime plugin 7.7.4 in FF 25.0.1 not playing audio files in their entirety

I've recently noticed that MP3 (and other) audio files on my phpBB 3.0.12 bulletin board (it's a members-only board, so I can't let you visit it, sorry) are not playing in their entirety when the Quicktime plugin 7.7.4 is used in FF 25.0.1 via a custom BBCode tag - a 2 minute 24 second long 128kbps stereo MP3 file will only play about 50 seconds, and the same audio in 44.1kHz stereo WAV format only plays about 5 seconds. This difference in playing time for the same length audio suggests (to my very limited knowledge) that it is something like the bit-rate (or the sample rate?) of the audio content that is determining how much gets played - i.e. only a limited maximum amount of data is being allowed through; the lower bit-rate (or sample rate?) of the MP3 means it plays for longer than the much higher bit rate (or sample rate?) of the WAV.

They play in their entirety at the same bulletin board when viewed in Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.16428 and Chrome 31.0.1650.57m (though there are some odd display issues in Chrome, but that's another story), and I'm sure it was working normally in FF until fairly recently.

The BBCode uses this HTML replacement to call on the Quicktime plugin:

<embed src="{URL}" width="200" height="15" autostart="false" loop="false" volume="80"></embed>

Has anyone else had this problem? Is it a known issue? (I'm finding this support area notoriously difficult to navigate, and have not been able to find any reference to it, hence my asking the question here.)

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I am a devoted user of Firefox but I have been experiencing constant crashes and am computer illiterate. The crashes seem to occur with my primary ISP e-mail account at cincinnatibell.net. It does not occur at all when I use my free web-based e-mail accounts such as the one given here, only with Cincinnati Bell Zoomtown E-Mail. When I try to log in to my mailbox I receive a unresponsive script notice which reads-Script: chrome://wrc/content/common/scripts/bal.js:854 I have contacted the ISP and they find nothing wrong on their end passing the blame back on me and my system to wit, my browser Firefox. They even tried to enter the mailbox using IE to no avail. The only reason I am able to respond to the e-mail from you was I clicked on Continue of the notice screen and it let me continue magically for some reason. How long this will last is anyone's guess. I am at a standstill in performing some of the steps to correct this but my computer skills are zero. Please help me with this as I enjoy Firefox and do not want to change to another browser. Any assistance must be very simple, step by step understandable by an infant. Thanks and please do not hesitate to contact me and hopefully I can end this constant fixing and enjoy my computer. I have as my OS Windows XP Professional Home 32Bit SP3. I try to keep any updates current but have difficulty even installing some like Adobe.

Firefox crashes

Hello there, I'm running a fresh install of Linux Mint 15. uname -a Linux Zacs-computer 3.8.0-34-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 12 18:02:44 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Li… (read more)

Hello there, I'm running a fresh install of Linux Mint 15.

uname -a Linux Zacs-computer 3.8.0-34-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 12 18:02:44 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

Firefox version is 25.0.1, which came along with the system.

It keeps crashing randomly and unexpectedly. It seems to be due to a "segmentation fault". That's all I get from a terminal at the moment of the crash. This is the latest crash report: bp-dbc53706-21a7-4524-8772-167242131204

I'm a regular desktop user of Linux, so I'm not very good at solving bugs by myself. The system is updated, firefox is updated. I tried to check hardware acceleration, but didn't really find it. I don't think I have this option. My machine is a bit old an Intel D946GZIS, with a celeron processor.

Firefox is my favourite browser, and I'd really like to stick to it. Any help will be appreciated. If you need any other information, please feel free to ask me. Thank you very much! Zac.

Since upgrading to OS X 10.9 ("Mavericks"), the video part of Google Hangout no longer works -- the video settings pane in Hangouts tells me that I have no camera. This isn't true; I'm on a laptop with a built-in camera, and the video shows up fine in other apps.

I've tried restarting Firefox, as well as uninstalling and re-installing the Google talk/video plugin. No dice.

This may be a red herring, but an informal poll of my co-workers seems to show that it's only people with 11" MacBook Airs that are affected. I find this rather suspicious, and I'm not sure it's actually a thing, but I suppose it's possible.

When I try to change the default firefox protocols in windows, only the nightly shows and I can not unclick it. When I attempt to click on a link in an email (Windows Live) I get "Class not registered"

I presently have IE set as my default because it is the only possible way to open email links.

I have tried everything that is offered as a solution. Once if not twice. I did the about:config..........change the SSL2 to true a month ago but now I went to check it and it isn't even there any more. I restored FF and that was kind of a pain but I did finally get things back to where I had them. The sites I am attempting to go to work fine in Chrome or IE. Just not on FF. It only happens on some sites. The ones that are important of course. Everything worked fine until a few months ago. I hate having to switch browsers to do the few things I need to. One of the suggestions was to contact the owner of the site which I did. They talked to me like I was from Mars and had no idea what to do.

This is the login page for my e-mail. When I open it in explorer there is a "sign in" button which doesn't show up in FireFox anymore. Even when I just hit enter, it will not go to my e-mail.

I have problem accessing SSL client auth protected websites.

Security module is succesfully loaded, Login via Security module is OK and I can see certificates from SmartCard in Firefox "Your Certificates" tab. When I navigate to SSL protected website Firefox does not open pop-up certificate dialog with my certificates list and I can't login to website.

I also try not to login via Security module directly and then, when I came to website, Firefox detect SSL client Auth request from website and backend middleware raise pop-up pin dialog. Again, I have logged in successfully into smartcard via middleware, certificates are loaded in "Your certificates" tab but Firefox does not opening certificate dialog.

Middleware is ActivClient 6.2 and Firefox version is 25. I also try with different Firefox/ActivClient version combination but same problem still exists.

Also, Firefox on Linux works ok (combination with Coolkey). I also try Coolkey and Firefox on Windows OS and also working.

Problem exists only with Firefox/ActivClient combination.

Does anybody have solution for this problem?

Thnx...

I have reset Firefox, completed all the steps in "flash video won't play full screen on YouTube, Facebook and other websites". And the video still won't play in full screen. It will play, but frequently stops or sound continues and picture freezes. I have noticed that if I continually move my mouse, it plays fine. All these videos play fine in IE and Chrome.

Every time I sign in to yahoo email on my laptop and go to check mail I get a screen with all links disabled. It states that I need to upgrade my firefox and explorer browsers. It provides a 'link' that says "continue without upgrading" but that link is also disabled. I can't even sign out from that page. The same computer has no problem using explorer and my desktop has no problem. I tried starting firefox in safe mode with no success. This started popping up about a week ago, but as of yesterday the links do not work. I am completely unable to access my email accounts (all of them) from this computer through firefox.

Hello all, I have a couple of things. One is a rather chronic problem with scrolling on Tumblr (pages with backgrounds that do not scroll have varying degrees of choppiness/stalling scrolling. Just look at my past questions to see a more detailed description), and the other is a script that fixes the problem (again, see past question replies for the script).

While it is a very small nitpick, I would like to know how to place that script in Greasemonkey, since it is a bit annoying to have to do it manually for every page that requires the script.

I tried looking at Greasemonkey to see if it was something I could do myself, but I decided I would go to those who (might) know, because with my luck I would mess up something crucial.

So...my two questions: 1) How does one make a Greasemonkey script? Or more like, how would one insert an existing script into Greasemonkey? 2) Is there a way to make said script automatically affect only the pages that would need it (for example, only tumblr pages with non-scrolling backgrounds? Since those with no/scrolling backgrounds are fine), or would I need to manually enter in the pages in question as I encountered them?
