Why did the Mozilla Plugin Check page stop working?


This morning I updated to Firefox 18.0.2. Then because of the java stuff that has been going on, I went to update to the latest version. I uninstalled the old Java and installed the new. Then I went to the plugin check page to make sure everything was good. I just did this last week and it was working, but today I do not see ANY plugins listed. The rest of the page loads fine and the links all seem to work, but the plugin section is completely blank. I tried refreshing, letting it sit on that page for 30 minutes or so, and restarting Firefox, but the page still implies I do not have any plugins. Any thoughts?
