Just updated to RealPlayer And yet the Plugin Update page still says my RealPlayer plugin is outdated. Is there some separate plugin that I'm missing?

Question owner

Just updated again to the latest RealPlayer. And the Plugin Update page still says it's outdated. This is, at best, misleading. Could you all at Mozilla please look into this? At the very least, this calls into question the accuracy of the Plugin Update page; at the most, it tells me that I'm screwing something up somewhere along the line.
