Get the message that add plugins.

Click to add plugins and the finder just keeps looking and never finds anything.

There's a few issues here. One is that the plugin finder service data is not live for Natty just yet. The other issue is that I broke this by removing all of the general.useragent.vendor* prefs from firefox, which ubufox is using to construct the URL to the online plugin finder data

This bug was fixed in the package ubufox - 0.9-0ubuntu1

---------------
ubufox (0.9-0ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * New upstream release v0.9
  * All patches are merged in to the upstream branch now

  * Fix LP: #750305 - Please update links and configs for Natty release.
    Rather than doing this manually for every release, we add a dist.js with
    distro information (populated at build time with lsb_release) and just
    do all this automatically.
  * Fix LP: #752364 - Plugin Finder Service never finds anything. Use the
    release info in dist.js to construct the URL, now that this got dropped
    from Firefox
  * Fix LP: #728826 - Update icons to new versions.
  * Drop the pluginGlue.js module. This didn't work, as we can no longer
    use a modules registerSelf method to use nsICategoryManager at startup,
    due to the XPCOM registration changes in Firefox 4. Instead, add
    category entries with the chrome.manifest
  * Fix LP: #709125 - User agent doesn't include Ubuntu in it so
    apt.ubuntu.com doesn't work. We add an extra X-Ubuntu HTTP header in
    requests to apt.ubuntu.com, rather than send this information out in
    every request in the UA string

  * Add build-depend on lsb-release so we can create dist.js

Note, this won't actually work for you until the service goes live, but the browser-side fixes are there (you can test those by setting <email address hidden> to 10.04 in about:config)
