That is flash:

<object height="20"><param name="movie" value="images/logo.swf"><embed src="images/logo.swf" height="20"></embed></object>

If flash is installed, then it looks like a regular plugins bug.

I have flash installed, Shockwave Flash 9.0 r45. And when you actually click on the Missing Plugin, it gives you an message that no suitable plugin was found (unknown plugin/text plain).

Bug 836415 has now removed the Plugin Finder Service (PFS) from Firefox. As a result, I'm closing all the remaining PFS bugs.

If you're getting this bugmail for an ancient PFS bug, the basic summary of the world today is:

* NPAPI plugins are a dying technology
* PFS was already restricted to assisting with only the 4 most common plugins
* Sites commonly provide their own UI for install a required plugin
* Mozilla is generally focusing on  improving the web platform so that proprietary plugins are not required.

(Note that "plugins" are a completely separate from "browser extensions", such at those found on addons.mozilla.org. The latter are not going anywhere, and are not impacted by the removal of PFS.)
