Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.
If you are the webmaster for that website, I suggest converting the movie to a different format, such as .avi and then reposting the video. Other wise, firefox cant install the quicktime plugin and cant play .mov files.
with that being said, if you are not t he webmaster, there is a change you can make to firefox internaly which may allow the video to play
In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.
(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste mp4 and pause while the list is filtered
(3) Double-click the media.mp4.enabled preference to switch it from true to false

I understand what you are saying, and agree with it. However in this situation there are already several pages dedicated as known bug reports for the same specific issue we were discussing.
In fact it was from that bug report page that I pulled the suggested workaround here """ Double-click the media.mp4.enabled preference to switch it from true to false""
Normally, before I file any bug / error / condition reports I check to see whether similar reports are already in place. Dual submitting bugs is frowned upon in the firefox forums.
I hope that answers your question / concern about the bug?
With that being said, were you able to make the change in the about:config section and get the .mov files working in FF ?
