Blocked Plug-ins in firefox

Firefox blocks a number of plug-ins to prevent possible crashes of the browser but some of the plug-ins listed are well known names such as Flash player, Java, Adobe flash.
For a full list look at this link,

Why so many well known names ?

Old versions which are insecure, or malware calling itself "Flash Player".

Re: Blocked Plug-ins in firefox

I updated my laptop to Firefox 14.0.1 today and I got a message asking if I wanted to update Java and Adobe Flash.  Both seem to have updated OK.
