Conatinually asks to update plug-ins that are already updated?
When I check my plugins, a few of them say to update due to vulnerability issues. Either some have been updated already and still ask to be updated or when they are actually updated and everything is refreshed, the plugins still show that they need to be updated.

Some plugins has been completely disabled, due to known vulnerabilities in all available versions, thus Firefox will prevent updating and totally disabling the vulnerability until a secure update is released.
If you see plugins in the list that have a yellow Update button or a red Update now button, please update these immediately.
To do so, please click each red or yellow button. Then you should see a site that allows you to download the latest version. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the steps mentioned in the installation procedure.
Note that Oracle has re;leased the Java 8 version and this has caused the Java 7U51 version to be reported as vulnerable.
You can find the latest Java 8 version on the Oracle website.
See Java Platform > Java SE 8 (JRE 8 Download)
You don't need to do anything since Java 7 Update 51 is not vulnerable (afaik) and is the recommended version offered at http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and http://www.java.com/en/download/
- Bug 985968 - Mozilla Plugin check page displays Java plugin as vulnerable even if the latest version is installed.
- Bug 985056 - Java JDK 8 released
