Is there a version of Firefox still available that does not have plugin-container.exe included?

I have faithfully updated Firefox on my Windows XP system and now use Firefox/3.6.16. I also run Photoshop Elements 6.0, which requires quite a bit of memory. It is currently getting slowed down because plugin-container.exe is consuming anywhere from 25% to 50% of my memory. If I use Task Mgr to shut down this task, things are much better. Is there a downloadable version of Firefox that does not include plugin-container.exe, and if so, can I replace my current version with that one?

You can disable the plugin-container process.

I went through the process that you described, made the suggested changes, then restarted FF and checked Task Manager to see if "plugin-container.exe" was present. It was not.

Thank you very much for the prompt response.

To LOVEfx4 and Mozilla community. Have Windows XP and had Firefox 3.16.6 Since installing Firefox 4 I have had nothing but slowdowns whenever I try to download any sites with Java. Any explanations why? Sorry, I cannot find any threads for Firefox 4.
