Plugincheck no longer lists all my installed plugins, only shows ones that are updated.

Posted

Plugin check use to list all my plugins, by category. It would show unknown plugins, need to update plugins, and up to date plugins.

Now, it only lists up to date plugins. It does not list all the others

But in your System Details I see three plugins installed.

Maybe you are confusing plugins and addons, to see your plugins go to Tools >> Addons >> Plugins

How are those plugins displayed in Tools > Add-ons > Plugins?

If they are disabled (Never Activate) then the plugin check page won't see them.

Which plugins do you have installed?

Are there any status messages present on the about:plugins page?

Hi cor-el

Plugin check only reports on three of the plugins (quicktime, Java, Shockwave). It doesn't provide status on any of the other active plugins. (Google earth, Google Talk, Silverlight, Coupons, etc)

I checked my other mac, and when I upgraded to Firefox 28, its doing the same thing. I thinks it is a change that Mozilla made.

Thanks for your help

Try this. Pick one of the plugins, go to its home website, and install its current full downloader.

No I am not confusing Addons with Plugins! In the plugin menu there are all my plugins that say up to date. At the top of the page there are several plugins with no box to up date or deactivate, everyone of them to the far right it says (Research)? I clicked on one of them that said Research, OMG it opened up another page full of stuff I had no idea what it meant. I am sorry my computer skills are less than expected, but that is what it said. What does (Research) have to do with if your looking for plugins are up to date or not??????

karendr asked - What does (Research) have to do with if your looking for plugins are up to date or not??????

Chances are the Mozilla Plugin Check page couldn't definitely identify the plugins that showed "Research".

The initial focus when the Mozilla Plugin Check was first instituted was Sun/Oracle Java, Adobe Flash, and Adobe Reader - the 3 plugins that had the most unpatched vulnerabilities and were the "most exploited" plugins out there. Other plugins were added to that "Check" page as a convenience for users, but weren't anywhere the security risk that Java, Flash, and Reader were for users.
