+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #752161 +++
When I click the addon manager's link to the plugin check website, I end up at https://www.mozilla.com/en/404 (which for whatever reason is using the Student Reps theme).
That seems wrong.
The link from about:plugins works, for whatever that's worth.
I'm using the latest Nightly build as of mid-day Friday.
In about:config, "plugins.update.url" is set to the default "https://www.mozilla.com/%LOCALE%/plugincheck/". (Which, when I replace %LOCALE% with "en-US", leads me to that same 404 error page.)
The https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ link does work for me (from Firefox and Tb's plugin check) and redirects to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ .
Is this the same as SM bug 787903?
Could the pref be merged into mailnews.js ?

The server side redirect has been fixed. This bug is about the client.

I think we may want to keep these separate.
Keep them separate, but switch to https as that's better for the user as it gives a bit more security against mitm attacks.

Looks great, thanks.
I have tested that all the changed links (outside of plugincheck) do work.
