Default Firefox upgrade will check for third party updates

Future Firefox upgrades will now check for third party add-on updates, like Adobe Flash, and other similar add-ons, plugins, and extensions. I think that is a really good move. Many times, the security can be compromised with these add-ons, or plugins. Adobe flash has been known to be a favorite of the hackers, and often contains vulnerabilities.
