A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

hey guys try this one

i just installed quicktime 7.2 and now everytime i pull up a page, try stream a vid, or something i get a "Q" with a "?" in the middle of it and the vids or ad are not playing.

any tips? thanks

RE: A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?


I'm getting exactly the same thing. I'm using firefox with a Mac, Could it have something to do with downloading the update?

Its a shame you've got no feedback on this subject.

RE: A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

Me too! I, too, am using Mac OS X 10.3.9 with Firefox as my browser. Who out there knows how we can solve this problem?

RE: A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

I've gotten the same thing.  This looks like a virus but I'm not sure.

RE: A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

This is my solution;
Open Quicktime>edit>preferences>browser>mime settings>miscellaneous>"Unclick Flash media"
Open Quicktime>edit>preferences>file types>miscellaneous>"Unclick Flash media"`

So far so good.

RE: A "Q" with a "?" in the middle?

Thank you for the suggestion, but it didn't work for me. I follow this pathway, suggested in another forum (a MacGenius told me that it's not a problem with Quicktime):

home>library>preferences>macromedia>flash player>www.macromedia.com>bin>fpupdatepl>flashUpdater8r24a

This works, but I have to do it EVERY time i open my browser.
