Why does "Check Your Plugins" report outdated plugins as "Up to Date"?

When I visit the "Check Your Plugins Page" here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/

It shows that that I Silverlight 5.1.404160, and shows it as "Up to Date."

That version has been out of date since the release of Silverlight 5.1.40728.0 back on August 11, 2015. That update fixed a vulnerability that allowed remote code execution!

Even that has been superseded by Silverlight 5.1.40905.0, released September 29, 2015.

So, why does your "Check Your Plugins" page report that an old vulnerable version of Silverlight is up to date?

Hi Folks, First of all I wish to say that Mozilla's Firefox and Thunderbird have been my Internet Communications apps for the past 8 years and that I will use no other apps because of your consistently excellent work on keeping up with both features and function! Lately I've been by the fact that plugins (namely Acrobat and Flash plugins) have not registered as having been installed! I ALWAYS restart Firefox after ANY plugin update installs, but this problem seems to be happening with the more recent updates after the most Recent updates to Firefox itself. Should I do a computer restart?? As I said this seems to be a very recent problem. And again, MANY thanks to everyone for 2 "don't-leave-home-without-it" apps!!!!

Hi, I have the latest adobe reader. When i check the firefox plugins, It says that it needs to be updated. But when installed , it closes as showing that the latest adobe reader is already in use and the only thing i could do is to exit this message with FINISH button. Now, if again checked, the firefox plugin shows that it is not updated. Some of the web page photos are not correctly captured. How to get rid of this problem. Is it a problem with FF or AR

I have a Mac and have Firefox 43.0.4 for my browser. I couldn't get an interactive website to work so did something with javascript. It was the wrong thing to do.

Gmail msg says: "JavaScript must be enabled in order for you to use Gmail in standard view. However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser. To use standard view, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, then try again."

Somehow I ended up disabling javascript and now can't reactivate it. I need help as non of the sites are working now.

Thanks.

I remove certain plugins and they reinstall themselves across all my synced machines.

I have sync enabled on a desktop (Win 10 64bit), a windows laptop (also Win 10 64bit), and both OSX and Windows 10 on my MacBook Pro (both 64 bit). There are some legacy plugins that I don't care about any more, and I try to delete them. They delete successfully on whichever machine, and are gone upon restarting Firefox there...but later or the next day, they're back.

It acts like there's a sync issue, and it thinks that the plugins should be reinstalled because the "sync" master says they should be there. Am I missing something? Is there a way to log into Sync and remove them from there, so that they're removed from ALL my Firefox installations?

Why plugins don´t have this option?

Since ver. 48 flash player is reported as an "unresponsive plugin" during attempts to play some files, (significantly on twich). Also some plugins etc. state that they are incompatible with FF.48. is this a picture of things to come or will it be sorted. I am (regrettably) using w10 which -annoyingly, does too much potching around of it's own volition.
