Im starting to think that there's something intentional there on Apple's
Many times Ive come across an embedded Quicktime .mov file on a web page and
have it crash out Firefox/Windows (with the latest Quicktime and Firefox
updates installed, too). Likewise, Ive had PDFs produced with Adobe
Acrobat/Windows that crash Preview on the Mac. One issue I have with QT on
Windows was being reported by users as far back as 2006 on the Apple Forums
- with no resolution ever posted.
The common feature between them is the ugly crash, rather than something a
little more graceful. I guess I should be thankful there isnt a "Microsoft
Visual C++ Runtime Error" to go along with it. I sometimes feel like the
collective computer users of the world are caught in a perpetual
push-me-pull-you battle between Adobe, Apple and Microsoft.
