Firefox Pug In check not working

I've just updated to Firefox 18.02 and the plug in update checker isn't showing. I reverted to 18.01 and it's not there either anymore. Anybody else having problems?

Works ok for me but I am using W/8 so not sure if that makes any difference.

You click on it and it gives you 5 choices I assume that's the one you mean.

Just pressed the update on it and it updated but said no updates available.Ok.

I suppose you picked the correct update.UK English.

I had a few problems with the 18.01 version realised I had downloaded the English US version on top of the English UK version so not 100% if that was what was causing my problem.

I find Firefox that bit slower since installing version 18.0 I/E works quicker than Firefox now.

Jock1e: The plug in checker is under Tools>Add-ons>Plugins.........at the top is a blue instruction to "check to see if your plugins are up to date" Click here and it opens another window which is supposed to list plugins and the details......whether they are up to date etc. As others have said this page isn't loading correctly at the moment. I always download the latest version (english-gb), then unstall the current one and install the latest. That way I keep a copy to revert to if necessary. Thanks.

Yes that's the one I used and it is working ok for me.

Funny how it affects some but not others.

I think this latest version (18.0.02) is the first version that hasn't listed plug ins that are not compatible.

So I might refrain from updating any for a while.
