NOT fixed by VLC. The npvlc.dll is still showing the 2.1.0 version.

Related support forum thread (includes screenshots):

https://support.mozilla.org/questions/982481 plugin check not working 

"The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed"

The PluginCheck page should be reporting that version 2.1.0 of the VLC Web Plugin is up to date, since it's the latest available version of the VLC media player Web Plugin file npvlc.dll included with VLC Media Player 2.1.2

If you installed the firefox plugin with 2.1.2, then it is fixed. Even if the number is 2.1.0 in the firefox plugin.

This is apparently fixed, as now reported in the related support forum thread, https://support.mozilla.org/questions/982481 

I can confirm that PluginCheck now shows "VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0" as being up-to-date.
