How do I make https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ work?
When I go the the page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ the area where formerly all my plugins were listed is now blank, I have disabled all possible extensions that could be blocking the plugins being displayed but still it is blank. How do I solve this?

hello, this is an error on the sever-side, so there's nothing you can do on your end to solve the problem at the moment. hopefully it will get fixed soon...
edit: the problem is already known and getting worked upon!

The problem is most probarbly due to plugincheck.js , ie the server produces the error not the client.
1. unterminated string literal at line 20
2. ReferenceError: Pfs is not defined
I used to send bugreports to bugzilla(dot)org but it is nowdays so messy that I have given up that channel. Hopefully some scilled programmer can confirm this and fix the problem in the server
the site should now work properly again...
Any knowledge of why, in the last couple of days, the Plugin Check page has stopped working with IE? Even though I use Firefox as my primary browser, we all are forced to have IE on the computer too, so I've been using that page for both FF and IE.
Also, I really don't like the new layout of that page. Why to companies keep changing a good thing just for the sake of change? :(

Mozilla wat are you doing Mozilla sthap. In all seriousness, dont fix what isn't broken. New plugincheck page is broken for all versions of IE, and the layout is the worst thing ive ever seen.
hello NCEDAUS, sorry i don't know of any current background on why the plugin check page won't work with IE recently - unfortunately i don't have IE on my system so i can't test it myself... if other people are seeing the same issue it might be worth filing a bug at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ to get the attention of developers.
as for the design, i suppose mozilla did change that to unify it with the rest of its corporate identity - i guess, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it's more important that the thing should actually get working & shows the right results...
My login doesn't work there. Do I have to create yet another username and password just to report a problem?
i've filed bug #861407 for the issue...
Thank you very much for your help! :)
