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.

For those who are not happy with Firefox's removal of the downloads display progress bar in the 25 series, you'll be even more unhappy with the 26 series. Even typing about:config and isetting browser.download.useToolkitUI to true no longer works. I sincerely despise companies that DO NOT provide their users OPTIONS, OPTIONS. OPTIONS! Instead of pissing off a sizable number of people who prefer things the way they were. Stop changing things for the worst! I want to monitor my downloads progress without having to take an extra step by clicking on the "Library" tab. Who are you trying to impress?

Hi, after a bit of head scratching, I realized that the Firefox option to Warn if page attempts to redirect, seems to be broken.

I am getting no warning message that a redirect was attempted.

I am using the FF 25.0.1 and it is up to date as the latest.

I am using this on XP SP3.

If I turn off Warn if page attempts redirect all is well. But if it is turned on, there is no warning message, this leaves users sitting on a page unaware that they should be somewhere else.

It has the effect of breaking a websites normal operation.

IP camera live feeds don't work, nor do any pages that are supposed to constantly update.

I just noticed this after all the error pages on all sites stopped going back to the index page. Not just one site, I could blame me if that were the case. Then I thought maybe the change to PHP 5.4, and started searching for this error and ended up looking at FF. So, then I tried and turned of warn if redirect is attempted, and the sites work normally.

Without the message, we are blind to what is going on.

What has happened to the warning message?

Am I the only person with a missing warning on a redirect or refresh attempt?

I've cleared cookies multiple times

I've emptied the cache

I cleared my download history, and a majority of my browsing history

I've tried having hardware acceleration for both flash and firefox on and off

I turned off all my apps and plugins and when that did nothing I turned back on the ones I need. I never had a lot of apps to begin with. only a max of 5. I had quite a few plugins, but i disabled all but quicktime, flash, and silverlight. I have those three set on "ask to activate" so none are "always active" anymore.

I also tried a couple things from the FAQ and forums here about changing a few settings in the "about:config" setup.

A few of the above things initially worked, but after a day or two it'd be back to sucking up my CPU and memory. I would then try the same thing again, and this second time there would be no improvement. The real memory will fluctuate between 200 MB and 1.7 GB, and has done so for quite a while.

Even after I've left streaming sites, and sites with lots of images, and I'm not downloading anything, the memory and the CPU will still do that. I only have a handful of tabs open at a timeusually, and all of them are mostly text. I'll quit and reopen firefox, which will initially bring the memory and CPU usage down, but it inevitably climbs up quite quickly, regardless of my tab usage. It'll be the same if I'm playing a flash game or scrolling through blogs.

I never had any of these problems with Firefox 23, and my internet usage habits haven't changed at all. I had some of this slowness a few times with version 24, but nowhere near as bad as this, or as constant. Almost everyday I end up googling for other ways to speed things up. Everything I do never slowed down Firefox on earlier versions.

I've tried all my usual tasks on Safari which will never climb above 30-40 MB of memory, even on netflix streaming, or flash games, and the CPU will average around 8 and 11%.

Hello, I have had this issue for a while and I have finally decided to ask for some help, usually I can find answers to my problems but am a bit stumped on this one. My issue is this: I do a search, right click link and open in new tab - works 80% of the time. ok other 20% page wont open just stuck. Whats interesting though is I have found if I refresh the google search page I can then open the link fine, - the first open page is still sitting there spinning around, sometimes when the link opens this will kick the first try into finding the site. Now it has been getting worse. Now links on web pages becoming inactive as in i click on the link and nothing happens, right click and it does not have open in new tab ect. Its as though the page has lost all of it connections to the internet. sometimes when i refresh the page after a link not working it will open the linked page? bizarre. I have done a lot of research on this and have done things like clear the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, changed to new profile, and a myriad of other things mainly in regards to pages wont load. does this happen in other browsers, I barely use other browsers so haven't noticed that it does. I use ghostery and ad block plus, ad block pop up, ad block is set to exclude google. does this happen on other computers with firefox on my wireless network? not as much sometimes pages wont load but can put that down to internet or wireless issues. I cant rule out it being a browser issue because when pages wont load from google links i can open bookmarks and the pages load as well as links from them out to the internet, and the page open via google still sits on spinning, try the link again and again and still wont load. Could it just be a bad link? it happens far too often for the internet to have that many bad links. other clues, Ad block plus and ghostery have used this and updated for a long time with out these issues. Issues only started with the last couple of firefox updates. something of interest is that this issue started around the time we upgraded to adsl 2+ from adsl and got a new modem, but the internet is still connected and I can still surf from the bookmarks so that could be just a coincidence so I still cant rule out a browser issue. oh does the page time out - eventually yes but takes a long time, I do see it saying waiting for fonts.google or other such things but tried all of those fixes and nothing helps. I hope I have been able to get my issue across. Any help would be greatly appreciated Soleous75

I began to have printing problems which may have been triggered when printing from the Firefox browser. I did not isolate the trouble with Firefox, but I did determine the cause was an installation of Windows Internet Explorer version 11 which was installed automatically on a Windows Update. I am running 64-bit Windows 7. I determined V11 was the problem by removing updates one at a time then printing from several programs I use like WORD, Excel, Powerpoint, Adobe Reader, Firefox, and Thunderbird. The symptom of the problem was that I could print fine once or twice, but then the communication between the PC and printer (Lexmark S405 b/g) became busy and no other print jobs would complete, even those from two other PCs (neither had V11) that worked fine for printing any print job before an attempt from the PC with V11. Once I resolved the problem to be V11, I did not try to isolate if it was triggered by any print job or one from Firefox, but I a little suspicion that it could be triggered by a print attempt from Firefox since I know I was able to print once or twice before the problem was triggered.
