Firefox crashes with error message: "Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working"

When I open Firefox it seems to be working fine for one minute, then everything freezes and I receive the following error message:

"Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working --> Check online for a solution and close the program --> Close the Program"

Neither option restores Firefox and I'm left with a frozen (white blurry Not Responding) screen. When I click on the X button, then I get the regular "Firefox is not responding" message and the whole program just shuts down.

Should I disable all plugins and / or this plugin container? How can I do that, if Firefox keeps crashing?

Basically, how can I fix this? Thanks a lot!
