Well for once I agree with Mele [gasp ].
The plugin container is really annoying,I have it set to ask in my firewall,cause it would just freeze FF for a few seconds when it loaded.
Whenever I finish with a certain page I just terminate the process in the taskmanager...............no idea why Mozilla went this route but they have to figure another way .
You can disable the plugin container by doing the following. Then, in task manager, you're left with Firefox.exe - no more plugin container.
My browser didn't crash that often, so I felt I'd rather chance a crash bringing the whole browser down, and get rid of an extra process.
