Mozilla websites leads to Firefox (35.0.1, Windows 7) message that (up to date!) plugin is blocked

There is a long discussion on bugzilla (follow https://blocklist.addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/blocked/p428 to the link to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=636633) on blockage of the Java plugin.

According to that (now closed for comments) thread, the bug is long time gone. However, Firefox still decides to block it by default.

Surprising, then, that a page used for checking plugins (https://www.mozilla.org/nl/plugincheck/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_campaign=plugincheck-update) uses this same plugin which then of course is blocked.

Suggestion: do one (or both) of the following; 1) Stop blocking the plugin by default, or 2) Stop using the plugin on Mozilla's own webpages.

Kind regards, Roel

hello Roel, the usage of java on the plugin-check site is a bug that is going to be addressed (refer to bug #1110451).
