This has been fixed on Mozilla's side in Bug# 752232

It tries to use https://www.mozilla.com/plugincheck/ and then gave a error instead when redirecting to https://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/

Many Mozilla pages that were on mozilla.com have since been either changed to or is being redirected to mozilla.org and sometimes issues have arisen.

The server redirect from mozilla.com to mozilla.org has been fixed (Bug 752232), so there is no longer need to modify the plugins.update.url pref, but it won't hurt to leave at set to the correct mozilla.org domain.
