Mozilla plug-in checker halts with error msg; unable to update Acrobat, Shockwave Flash, Java, Metastream.

Desktop running XP Media Centre Edition, Firefox 18.0.1. Acrobat 7.0.0.0 plug-in generates warnings, suggests update needed. Shockwave Flash 10.1.85.3 is vulerable and needs update. Java SE 7 U 4 is vulnerable and has been disabled and caution suggested when using. Metastream 3.2.2.26 is disabled. Plug-in checker does not complete check; reports error, try again later. Very frustrating when Firefox disables plug-ins, yet won't let you update them!

The plugin check page is having some bugs today. In the meantime, use http://ninite.com/flash-java-reader/ninite.exe to update your software.

Thanks for the help. Problem has been fixed. It's nice to have a "community" supporting us. I like FF primarily because it's not from M$. (I still have one machine running OS/2! Wish we had some FF ports so I could go online with it.)

Thanks again, Tylerdowner.
