Shouldn't they actually make sure it can detect FF plug-in versions properly first? On my systems the only plug-in it reliably detects the version of is Flash. It is a bit funny seeing things like "VLC Multimedia Plug-in Version 1.0.5 - Unable to Detect Plugin Version".

It couldn't even detect flash on mine..
"Silverlight 3.0.50106.0" ... "Unable to detect plugin version"
"Shockwave Flash 10.0 r42" ... "Unable to detect plugin version"
FFS guys you *printed* the version.
