Without RP plugin installed, go to a page that has RP content such as http://www.topgear.com/content/videos/category/challenges/1.html. 2. Observe the content pane, where multiple missing plugin icons are shown.
There are actually three embed tags looking for realplayer on that page - not sure if this is really a bug.
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.)
