Hi All,

For legal reasons I am required to collect the information in navigator.plugins and send it along with web requests for submissions are users are making to the government tax office.
This is part of their anti-fraud measures.

Firefox no longer allows you to enumerate the plugins object but does allow plugins.namedItem
I was going to use this to get the details of a few common plugins and send this data however I can never get it to return anything.

With Flash and Java plugins dead, is there anything at all I can check for?
OpenH264 and Widevine are the default installed plugins, but I can't seem to check for them.
Is it possible?


I would prefer to send something rather than nothing, because if the plugins data is empty it gets added to the nag reports we get sent by the government listing all non-compliance fields

Quite amazing your government has nothing more important to do than trying [for legal reasons] to collect money with firefox plugins.
If not confidential, who is this government ?
