First off, I think the link should be <http://news.gnome.org/gnome-news/981746971/>

Second of all, don't install Quicktime in mozilla. It takes over PNG files. :(

Quicktime will only do that if it is set to act as a plug-in for PNGs, which it does by default (which Apple should stop doing since all the major browser support PNGs now), and you can easily turn it off in the preferences for Quicktime.

I could never get the Quicktime plugin to stop taking over PNGs in Mozilla. I had to rename the DLL that did that so I coulf keep Quicktime movie support in Mozilla and let Mozilla handle PNGs.

In Quicktime Player, goto Edit->Preferences->Connection Speed

Change the menu entry to Browser Plugin

Click on MIME Types...

Scroll down and double click on both png and x-png mime types so that the + on the left hand side goes away.

Restart Moz and you should be safe from Quicktime PNG tyranny.

Gnotices has been going down for long periods of time a lot recently. Is it just my DNS acting up? It shouldn\'t be. Anyone know anything about this?

As far as I know, gnotices has been down for at least the last day.

maybe it was /.'ed? There was an article on this on /. as well as several other Linux sites.
