When will you get rid of the resource hog, "Plugin-Container.exe"
Plugin-container-exe has a memory leak. When you go in and out of numerous web sites, it consumes more and more and more memory and turns my computer into a dog. Since the inclusion of the plugin-container, explorer is now a better browser.

When my computer gets slow, I can hit CTL-ALT-DEL and look for plugin container and it will have consumed about 1 to 2 gigs of memory. UGH!!!!

Sounds like it is time to move to Chrome. In the last several months Firefox has slowed to less than a crawl.
Is this a lesson on how to lose 70% market share and tube your business. Sounds like Abobe, Apple and Microsoft got together and designed the perfect bomb for Firefox wrapped in the form of a flash drive.
Are you serious that this is your "solution"? I did as you suggested -- changed the flags to "false" -- and now I restared Firefox with a mere 10 tabs open (no videos; just a few text pages, gmail, yahoo finance, barrons.com) and Firefox is consuming 1.1 gb of RAM. What's the reason behind this? It looks like whatever resources were being swallowed by plugin-container.exe are now being swallowed by Firefox itself, so that doesn't solve the problem.
Is Firefox a good idea taken too far? When it began, the Firefox project was a fast, nimble browser. Is it now too bloated and convoluted to be of any use? Is it a victim of its success?
