Hi acustic, I don't know what application is showing you that screen, but to be clear: Firefox never touches any applications installed by the user. In this case it says "Mozilla Plugins". It's unfortunately not clear what that means. It could be an extension that was installed into Firefox that is doing something with Chrome. It could also be a plugin like Flash or Java. Really, it's impossible to tell. The best way to make sure that Firefox is not running any extensions that you are not aware of is reseting Firefox. Here is how: Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings

the npgoogleupdate3.dll plugin is a plugin by google that hooks into the firefox browser. so if you have concerns about what is going on, you'd have to direct those to google's software that is installed on your pc (the google update is generally also present in the autorun programs, and scheduled to run via the task planner without any choice for the user).
