How do I stop the annoying plug-in update message from popping up?

Posted

Don't want to update; found out these plugins were incompatible.

hello, enter "about:config" into the location-bar of the browser, confirm the info dialog, then search for the preference named "plugins.hide_infobar_for_outdated_plugin" & double-click it in order to toggle it to "true".

please note that firefox also won't support the ppc architecture any longer, however if you want to use an up-to-date browser based on firefox you can switch to "tenfourfox" , the downside would be: it doesn't support plugins at all - Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.4 or PowerPC processors
