Downloaded VLC Web Plugin Version 18.104.22.168 and rebooted and restarted Firefox. Firefox Plug Ins still shows old version 22.214.171.124. When I check Firefox for latest version is says 126.96.36.199 is the latest and I'm up to date.
When I open VLC as a standalone it comes up as version 188.8.131.52.
Why is Firefox not incorporating the correct version?

Try to delete the pluginreg.dat file in the Firefox Profile Folder and maybe addons.sqlite as well to reset the plugin registry databases.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
- Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder
Version 184.108.40.206 shown in Plugins is the the version of the Firefox Plugin, not the VLC version. To see the VLC version, open VLC then Help > About. The Plugin version 220.127.116.11 has remained constant over the last few VLC updates and will likely not change until some revision is made to the Plugin, if needed.
