Mozilla plug-ins fail to work Web Browsers
In this thread on the forums, 'stizz' posts about a problem with Mozilla. Basically, any site requiring a plug-in was failing with a message that read "QuickTime is missing software needed to perform this operation. Unfortunately, the software is not available on the QuickTime server".

After some off-track attempts at help from yours truly, 'skel' came to the rescue with a pointer to the exact same problem (but with a solution) on the front page of ResExcellence. Basically, if you set your disk cache to zero, then plug-ins that need to create temporary files will generate the above error message. QuickTime and Flash are two of the affected plug-ins.

So if you're using Mozilla, do not set the disk cache to zero until this bug is fixed! If you'd like to track the progress of the fix, you can watch bug 116562 on bugzilla.
