DJ.Leith commented: "Finally, I posted the link for the IE9 result because I thought all "Up to Date" buttons would be / should be green. Maybe I don't understand the 'colour scheme', are you using different colours for 'IE reporting'?" This must still be something left over from pre page redesign into Sandstone.
I am going to read this as ensure consistent button colors period.
For the record and ease of reference, here are two screenshots taken in August 2014. These are from bug 1020133 comment # 18 and 19 "Plugincheck-Screenshot-Win7-IE9-After-Flash-update-shows-Blue-CORRECT-20140813.png" https://bug1020133.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8472632 This shows that, using IE 9, the "Up to Date" button was blue, *this* bug. The result was 'a correct report'. Reader has never been installed 'via IE' so there is no Reader (ActiveX) Plugin for IE on this computer, as shown on the next screenshot. "Plugincheck-Screenshot-Win7-Fx31-After-Flash-update-shows-Reader-CORRECT-20140813.png" https://bug1020133.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8472634 Here, using Fx 31, we have the 'normal green button' for "Up to Date".

Fixed, however note, plugin check is now a Firefox only service.
