User Agent: Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 5.1) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.15

Steps to reproduce:

Opened https://www.mozilla.org/en/plugincheck/ in Opera 12.15 with plugins disabled.


Actual results:

The website displays the following wrong and misleading texts:

| Missing JAVA?
|
| For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Java. Please upgrade to the latest version.

Java is but not installed here!

| Warning, a newer version of your browser is available. Please upgrade your browser.

Opera 12.15 is the latest and current version, the statement is wrong.

After enabling plugins and reloading, the following wrong information is displayed:

| Adobe Acrobat
| Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape "9.5.5"	Outdated Version

9.5.5 is the current, latest and supported version of Acrobat 9.5!


Expected results:

No wrong information displayed.
According to https://www.mozilla.org/en/plugincheck/more_info.html, Opera 10.5 and newer are fully supported. This is apparently wrong.
The following plugins are "unknown"?

| Microsoft® DRM
| DRM Store Netscape Plugin

This is installed with every version of Windows!

| Windows Genuine Advantage
| 1.9.0042.0

This was available on <http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/Validate.aspx>

| Microsoft® Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin
| np-mswmp

See <http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download>

| SumatraPDF Browser Plugin

See <http://blog.kowalczyk.info/software/sumatrapdf/free-pdf-reader.html>

I am going to close this as fixed as I just tested plugincheck in both Opera release and Opera Next and everything works as expected.

In terms of unknown plugins, this simply means we do not track that specific plugin in our database currently, so the behavior is as expected.

Couple of things here:

1) We support the latest three stable versions of a browser with plugincheck (there is a bug open to make this more clear), and with Opera being at version 22 now, it means we no longer support version 12.x
Opera 12.17 is ONE of the stable versions of Opera, see

I understand that, but as with Internet Explorer, there comes a time when we have to move forward and place focus on the newest, most widely used versions of a browser. With that said, I will reopen this bug and add it to the roadmap for further investigation.

Thank you for taking the time to report this, much appreciated.

For a period of time, until we reexamine supporting all browsers, plugincheck will only report on plugins in Firefox. For more see 1121456
