The ability to check and see if our Plugins are up to date is still not available.


Just like in my post #7263 for ver. 50.0.2 this option is still not available.


Thanks for the hard work and update, much appreciated!!!

Hmm that's odd, seems to work for me? What issues do you get with the page?

Also, enjoy v51 :-)

I tried that same site with Firefox and it doesn't seem to work right for me either (it claims I have no plugins when in actual fact I have the H.264 codec installed). I would suggest manually checking plugins (Ctrl-Shift-A, Plugins, note which ones you have) by going to the originating maker's site (e.g. for Flash and/or Shockwave, go to Adobe's site), and seeing if you are up to date.

OK let’s make sure we are addressing the same issue.

We use to be able to check to see if our Plugins are up to date
from the “Add-ons Manager”, “Plugins” page.
In post #7274 you said “Ah damn sorry, I'll add that back in, keep missing it out!”

Is this option no longer going to be used?




I know we can go to https://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/ to check plugins.
I was just wondered if the shortcut was going to be added back into the “Plugins” page.

Thanks Mr. Alex for all your time and work on this project!!!

Quantum Reality,

Using Ctrl-Shift-A does nothing for me.
Is this supposed to show us our plugins?

Also this should help: https://www.accessfirefox.org/Firefox_Addons_Options.php

Ctrl-Shift-A should pop up something like this image:

No using Ctrl-Shift-A does nothing for me.
Is there anybody reading this that is having success using "Ctrl-Shift-A" to open their plugin page?
post #7286 of 7308
I added another URL to my previous post that shows another way to access the add-ons page.

Quantum Reality,

Thanks for the responses.
I was having a brain fart, I was pressing Clrt+Alt+A and not Ctrl+Shift+A.
Ctrl+Shift+A does work.

Thanks for your help. Now if we could just check our plugins from this page.

Ah I see...looks like I misunderstood. What I kept missing out was the help URL that redirects to the plugin check page on the Mozilla website. I had no idea that that built-in check is what you meant. Has it ever worked for 64-Bit versions of Firefox? If so, I don't change/touch any code relating to this feature so I'm not sure what it could be.

It looks like the Mozilla team combined the check for updates button with several other functions.

There is a "Check for Updates" button in the drop down menu near the search box

.

It is present and functions in Firefox x64 51.0.1

Chas

Just installed Waterfox 51.0.1 and the Check for Updates function is in the same drop down menu as shown above.

The link in the archive to download WF 50.0 gives a 404. Any idea where I can download it?

I need to revert my installation. Every problem I have ever had with Waterfox has returned in one single update (52.0.1) and it wasn't much better in the previous version (50.0).
