Firefox vs out-dated plugins

more options

Hello, can someone tell me if there are any plans (for future versions of FF) that Firefox will automatically check for latest versions of plugins/addons and disable out-dated plugins (like G.Chrome is doing right now). I´m specially interested in Java (JRE)?

It can be serious issue for our clients if older versions of JRE will be disabled automatically.

Thank you for your response.

Yes, there is a plan for doing that, currently it is targeted for Firefox 14, but that can change: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Opt-in_activation_for_plugins
