Simply copy the following two files (do not move) from the /Library/Internet Plug-Ins folder to the Internet Plug-Ins folder in your home directory (~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins):

Shockwave Flash NP-PPC

This worked for me; setting MIME settings in the QuickTime control panel did not help with Mozilla, as of 1.2b, anyway.

Thanks, this is a great tip. Finally I can play flash games in Mozilla 1.6! Changing the mime setting in the QuickTime System Preferences didn't work for me with QT 6.5 & Mozilla 1.6.

To update this tip for Flash 7 and Mozilla 1.6:

Copy these two files from /Library/Internet Plug-Ins to your ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins and then restart Mozilla:

Shockwave Flash NP-PPC

When QuickTime takes over flash plugins, the arrow keys (and maybe others too) are intercepted by QT, which QT uses for fast-forward/rewind of movies. While this behaviour is acceptable for other movie types, it's not appropriate at all for most swf files because many don't play in "normal" sequential order--notably swf games.
