Firefox creates PLUGIN-CONTAINER.EXE processes
« on: March 27, 2020, 12:15:41 am »
I have a customer's screen print of TOP, and it shows six separate processes for PLUGIN-CONTAINER.EXE They all take a bunch of resources. What's the best way to stop this from happening?

With Firefox closed, move plugin-container.exe out of the way. More important might be to remove all plugins if any. Ask your customer to enter the URL about:plugins into the url box and see if he has any installed. Odds are none work anymore.
I should probably remove it from the install manifest so it no longer gets installed as plugins are mostly broken
