'Check to see if plug ins are up to date' not working

Posted

The 'Check to see if your plug ins are up to date' link on the Add-ons Manager page is not working correctly. The link opens on Mozilla Student Reps page. I'm using Firefox 12.0

Chosen solution

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.
