Why 'Check Your Plugins' report outdated plugins as "up-to-date"?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 I got 5.1.404160 Silverlight and it also shows "updated."

This version is outdated since the release of Silverlight 5.1.40728.0 back on August 11, 2015. This update fixes a vulnerability allowing code execution remotely.

Even who was replaced by Silverlight 5.1.40905.0, released on September 29, 2015.

So why your 'Check Your Plugins' page report that vulnerable old version of Silverlight is up-to-date?

Thank you for that bring to our attention. I just updated the page and it should reflect its own version now.

  • Problem check Java plugin and mozilla.

    I encountered some problems with the java plugin (SE and mozilla plugin check site. I always check that if my plugins are up-to-date, so today I did this audit controls and plugin told me, that the java plugin was "outdated". But, it turns out, there is no new version of the java plugin. OK, maybe glitch or something like that, so I reintall plugin-plugin check shows always the same message - "obsolete". I introduced in safe mode in Firefox, tried to delete the file pluginreg.dat profile directory, even reinstalled Firefox itself. Nothing helps.

  • Why adobe reader plugin shows as not being updated, even when it's the last version

    I have the latest adobe reader. When I check the plugins from firefox, it says that it needs to be updated. But once installed, it closes as showing that the last adobe drive is already in use, and the only thing I can do is to get out this message with the button FINISH. Now, if it is still activated, the firefox plugin shows is not up-to-date. Some of these photos on the web page are not correctly captured. How to get rid of this problem. Is this a problem with FF or AR

    edited to remove the spaces to the left causing a horizontal scroll bar to appear in the details

    Hi jraju, that's exactly right: the plugin check Web site is currently wrong. If your product Adobe says that it is up to date, it is the most accurate information at the moment.

  • I'm just getting to know Firefox yet once, how do I know why Microsoft put plugins under my Add ons?

    I wanted to know if anyone knows why Microsoft put plugins under my add on area? It is everywhere in my programs and the computer, so that makes no sense to me? I would like to disable this if I don't train any problems on my computer. I use the photo gallery.

         OK    ANSWERED BELOW - The plug-in allows you to open and edit files using Microsoft Office applications
           * Office Authorization plug-in for NPAPI browsers

    I also wanted to know how to put the software missing in Firefox. I don't have Adobe shock wave, or Java on my computer. I just make a recovery. I was about to do for software sites, but there are weird things happening near your sites that I don't like. This is such a beautiful home for me!

    Thank you

    Microsoft does not have the plugins with modules - Mozilla has done.
