    that's funny, i use firefox and that's EXACTLY the problem I have. Apparently it has something to do with embedded .AVI files.

    The workaround (using the latest firefox), is to find a page where you have this problem and at the top of the firefox window got TOOLS/PAGE INFO/MEDIA, now a window will pop-up with a scrollable list with 2 collumns ("adress" & "Type"), scroll down the column under "Type" until you find a file that says "Embedded", this is the media. Right click on the file and "Save file as" (your desktop), this download the file to your PC so you can look at it "Manually" and in your own time...

    as for a proper "Fix" for this issue I don't know. If I install Quicktime I can't see any of the quicktime files in firefox, but as soon as I un-install it, MOST of the quicktime videos work!!..... oh, how I love windows...........

    Go to the www.adobe.com webstie and download the uninstaller. after uninstalling flash player. reinstall it again from their webpage. I had the same problem with mine not working correctly and it fixed the problem. Here is the link to the uninstaller. Follow the directions per the Adobe site.
