Firefox: Managing plugins



  • Plugins are used by videos, animations and games displayed in webpages.
  • They are independent of Firefox and are developped by companies like Adobe Systems, Sun, and Apple.
  • Plugins are not always automatically updated.
  • Open the Tools menu.
  • Choose Add-ons.
  • Click the Plugins tab.
  • Click on a plugin in the list.
  • Click Disable or Enable.

Warning: disabling a plugin means that you won't be able to do certain things. For example, if you disable Flash, most video streaming websites won't work.
  • Outdated plugins can interrupt browsing and waste your time.
  • Outdated plugins increase the risk of attack by malicious software, virus and other threats.
  • Updated plugins benefit from improvements making the web better and safer for you.

Open Firefox and go to this link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/npapi-plugins.
The list of available updates will be displayed:
  • Open the Tools menu.
  • Choose Add-ons.
  • Click the Plugins tab.
  • Click on the blue link "check to see if your plugins are up to date".
