I tried out the Plugin Check site, and got a large warning message at the top saying: "Missing FLASH?

For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Flash. Please upgrade to the latest version."

I don't have any version of Flash for Firefox to have disabled, making this message both incorrect and unwelcome.

I have duplicated this bug and it does the same thing when the Java Runtime Environment isn't installed (as is the case on my system.)

I have the same problem as John Corliss. I don't have any Java installed and the Firefox's Plugin Check site is saying: "Missing Java? For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version."
That's very weird because it's language dependent. On:
https://www.mozilla.org/en/plugincheck/
I get a warning about disabled Java whereas on:
https://www.mozilla.org/pl/plugincheck/
I get a warning about disabled... Flash.

And it's all on a Windows 7 machine that has neither Flash nor Java installed...
I can no longer reproduce it.
