You can toggle this pref to false on the about:config page.

  • media.gmp-gmpopenh264.provider.enabled = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

The plugin itself is stored in the gmp-gmpopenh264 folder if you really want to remove the plugin.

hello J-sus, that is a legitimate part of firefox, that for licensing issues has to be shipped as a plugin. do you have any particular reason you want to remove that?: http://andreasgal.com/2014/10/14/openh264-now-in-firefox/

My virus and malware programs alert all the time. I am now using my other computer writing you this mail because this "malware" has certain effects on computer performance. You don't know?
