If there was a way to disable the plugin check completely, would this website be the right place to get an honest answer?

Posted

Most answers tell me how to update firefox or how to fix it, how to make the plugin check work or tell me some workarounds. That´s why i think Mozilla has no interest to let the people disable the plugin check, because it got implemented for a reason. But the whole thing is not about computer science. It is about psychology, respect and the free will of the people. At first i get annoyed by this plugin check, then i want my revenge. I want to disable the plugin check! I do not want to make the plugin check work. I do not want to install a new version of firefox. I do not want to update my firefox and i do not want to fix my firefox. In fact i want a (virtual) sledge hammer to destroy my firefox - just a little bit regarding the plugin check. But one feels treated like a child, that has to be protected from it´s own decisions. That´s when i feel annoyed the second time around. So, if mozilla doesn´t grant me the choice to disable the plugin check at will, i am only free to decide which browser i´m going to use.

hello, firefox 14 has reached its end of life months ago & is no longer supported. just Update Firefox to the latest version - this will already fix the problem.

... when you lead with your chin, don't be surprised if you get knocked on your ass.

I´m sorry if i have confused you with my explanation. Since i´m a webdesigner by myself, i don´t have a problem to cope with the plugin check. I just wanted to find out if mozilla is monitoring the given answers. Thank you!

@ the-edmeister I´d like to apologise if you felt offended by my question. That was not my intention. Within my explanation i tried to describe the feelings of an unexperienced user like my father (77 years old). Because i felt the answers given so far were evasive. Everybody recommended to update or fix firefox respectively the plugin check, but no one seemed to answer the question if one can disable the plugin check completetly. I just wanted to know if there is some kind of censorship that blends out answers inconvenient to mozilla. Thank you!

When people come here with a bit of a attitude like you did they tend to get ignored or not really helped like would have if they just stayed calm and asked. This is a forum of volunteers who only have so much time to spend and which would you rather spend time helping in, a thread where the OP had a attitude or was rude and or attacking others or Mozilla or spend time in a thread where the OP was calm and polite ;).
