It may even be something about the XiphQT install that changed.

Or, more significantly, something the XiphQT install can fix. If so we
don't have the problem of where we can't tell Safari users to install
XiphQT (because if they do they'll just continue to get the message).
At the moment we're just going to have to tell Safari users to install
Firefox 3.5 though.
