I just updated to Firefox 50.0 from Firefox 49.0.2 on Windows XP.
The plugins section of the about:addons page does not display anymore the very useful link "Check to see if your plugins are up to date" at the top of the plugins list.
Is this a bug that needs to be fixed or is this feature available from somewhere else?

Probably not a bug... that somewhat 'built-in' function has not worked properly for some time...

FWIW ... I use this app to check from time to time ... checks if app. updates are out there...

EDIT ... or, you can visit this link to check... ... ndows.html

Bookmark It doesn't list all plugins, probably because they aren't in the database referenced.
