FF has come up with a Plugin update nag lately.
I cannot get rid of it. Toggled update notify in about:config, no joy.
Removed the URL which worked for a couple of hours yesterday, but now it opens a blank tab on startup.

Yes, I know I could update the plugins, that's not the point though.

How do I shut it up?

Are These suggestions (http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/938771) any good, or have you already done that.

Why not just update the plugin.

Tried all the about:config tweaks.
It re-enables :
plugins.update.notifyUser

Why? Because I don't want to be dictated to by software, it should be my choice when I update.
It's mostly nagging about Java anyway...

If its only Java, have you tried this: go into the control panel, double click the Java icon, under the update Tab, untick check for updates.

OR is it FF doing it ?

One reason I hardly use FF these days, its always wanting to update something here or there. :)

No it's FF. It's Java and um....can't remember what the other was.....it's never done it before, always ignored my settings - which were OFF, so don't know what started it up. I don't update FF either, I only ever update anything manually, never have the autos on.
Bloody annoying.
