Edit to add - Ignore this post. I was on FF47 and the problem was fixed when I updated to FF48.


Original Post:

I need to update Shockwave Flash. When I open the Add-on Manager page there is a link next to the title of the add-on called "update Now".

However this link directs to the help page about blocked add-ons https://blocklist.addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/blocked/p1236

It would be better for the "Update Now" to direct to the support page for the add-on author. Then users are more likely to update the add-on and less likely to stumble on a malicious version when searching for an update.

Failing that, update the text so "Update now" is replaced with "More info" or similar

Thank you for posting in your thread that the fix was to update Firefox to version 48. I will lock the thread - someone else did.
