For the first time ever, I clicked Addons > Plugins > check for updates
, in Firefox, and was very surprised to watch the following procedure.
First, I was sent to a homepage that knew what plugin versions I have. Unfortunately it didn't know more than 6 out of 28. The remaining 22 plugins were merely marked with a grey (gray) button saying "Unable to Detect Plugin Version".
Then, when clicking the first "update" button, (Adobe Shockwave), the homepage would send me to Adobe's homepage, using the same window
!! I find this to be equal to idiocy. Of course it must
use another window / tab!
Finally, when I clicked the first of the 22 grey (gray) buttons, HD View 188.8.131.52 Mozilla plugin, Firefox did *not* link me to the product's homepage, but merely gave me a google search (still in the same window) for current version plugin HD View
Realizing I still had 21 more plugins to go, I simply gave up and closed the plugin's box.
Do you 'auto-update' your Firefox plugins via https://www.mozilla....m/en-US/plugincheck/
- or what do you do to keep your plugins updated??
