Add refresh button on installed mod screen to check if there are missing or new jars in the mods folder

Currently the detection of new mods in the folder that were downloaded from the website and put in the mods folder and not through client have a hard time being detected so a refresh button would be nice to force check if there are new or missing jars or resource packs

    I have some code laying around to parse JAR files and get some info out of them. I've used it in the past to generate markdown files with a list of mods, their versions, authors, the CurseForge link, etc. shouldn't be too much of a struggle to sync the mods and show "custom" mods separately :)

    I've used pizzip to parse the JAR files in NodeJS.

Hold on!
