Wrong plugin blocked URL

Postby access2godzilla » Mon Jul 08, 2013 12:29 pm

Plugins known to be vulnerable are blocked by PM/FF and these plugins carry a message (in the Add-ons>Plugins list) that "xyz is known to be vulnerable and should be updated [More]", where "[More]" is a link containing details.

PM opens the wrong URL when [More] is clicked:

Code: Select all


but it should be actually:

Code: Select all


Please fix this bug.

Thanks for reporting this.

It's a pref bug, and actually should not even forward to that URL (so it's a Mozilla code parsing bug as well, by the looks of it).
You can fix it on-the fly by going to about:config and changing extensions.blocklist.itemURL to https://addons.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/blocked/%blockID% and exiting&restarting the browser.

I'll change this default pref in the next version of Pale Moon to the correct one.
