Hello. Peace,

I have just noticed that all five browsers I test (IE 32-bit, IE 64-bit, Firefox, Opera and Chrome) have their entries in "Secure Browsing" tab.

However, only Java JRE 7u55 is listed under main browsers expanding items list.

Correct behavior would be to detect all plugins (or both Flash plugins).
This means listing Adobe Flash ActiveX under IE and Adobe Flash NPAPI under all remaining browsers. It is the trivial knowledge that IE uses only ActiveX while Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome use only NPAPI plugin-version.
