The Mozilla Add-ons site cannot detect what you do or do not have installed. We don't expose this information to websites, even ones run by Mozilla. (with the notable exception of NPAPI plugins, which are being phased out) The current security design has no plans to announce to any sites what addons you have installed, and it's not likely to be added any time soon.
