    Even though RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension has been blocklisted and should be disabled in the Add-ons Manager, you may also need to open RealPlayer, go to "Preferences -> Download & Recording" and uncheck "Enable Web Download & Recording for these installed browsers", then click OK, close RealPlayer and restart Firefox.

    See bug 763459 comment 19 and the June 13 revision by grey_aria to add a new "Disable Download & Recording in RealPlayer" section. Note that these instructions are also in Adobe's troubleshooting page at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1018071
