Plugin container problems persist despite frequent attempts to cure it

Posted

I am not a computer expert but I can usually follow and cure problems

However . . . this plugin container nonsense is getting worse by the hour. And no, I don't have a bloody virus!

It's the clash between Mozilla and Adobe that's at the heart of this and it's scandalous that nobody is owning up.

I'd like to stay with Firefox, but I'm at the end of my tether.

Is there a solution?
