The "check to see if my plugins are up to date" link is missing from my list of plugins, but it appears from the Firefox FAQ that the plugins still need to be checked for updates. Why isn't this link on the page listing my plugins anymore, and how can I check to see if they are up-to-date?

I appreciate any valuable information that can be supplied with links to the information source in advance.

You can use a direct link to the Plugin Check site (either bookmark it for future reference or if you remember the name, you can type part of it into the address bar and Firefox should show it in the drop-down):

https://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/

As for why there's no longer a link on the Add-ons page, I don't know.

It should be at the top of the Plugins page. None of the other Add-ons Manager pages have it.

That hyperlink in the Plugins tab was removed in Firefox 50.

IMO, that should have been left there until Firefox 52 when NPAPI plugins, other than Flash, are eliminated from Firefox.

Thanks for the info! Hopefully they add the link back to the top of the plugin page soon...
