You can use a plugin from codeweavers, but I think you have to purchase it..

Click on your Plug-in FAQ for firefox for all the supported (and free) plugins

- mplayer plugin, which works surprisingly well. Requires a functioning mplayer installation, and to use Quicktime you'll need to have enabled Quicktime during the mplayer installation.

- The Sun JRE works just as well - or better - in Linux than in Windows. Just install it and create a symlink in your firefox/plugins directory to the jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/ file and you're set.

Get a grip...codeweavers indeed! Get the java self extercting binary from sun right click it and change the permissions so it is executable, cd to wherever you want to put it and then run the script (drag and drop it into a gnome terminal works for me). Then
cd ~/.mozilla
mkdir plugins
cd plugins
ln -s /path/to/java/j2re1.4.2_03/plugin/i386/ns-gcc32/

Quicktime is more complicated as you need to make the Mplayer and then the mplayerplug-in. I think there are other things that will do Quicktime to but I've never looked into them as the Mplayer does the business for me.

I use the mplayer plugin for quicktime and windows media files but I use the gxine plugin for real player files and it works perfectly. I use the mozplugger to get built in plugins for lots of different media types. Plus I use the Blackdown Java plugin because that works best for Java for me.
