How far from a do-able thing is this? Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
This seems like a specific case of bug 359873?
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.)
