You do not want to remove it as that is for running : Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.8 Google Update NPRuntime Script Plug-in Library for Java(TM) Deploy Next Generation Java Plug-in 11.144.2 for Mozilla browsers DRM Store Netscape Plugin DRM Netscape Network Object Rhapsody Player Engine Plugin Shockwave Flash 27.0 r0 4.0.60831.0 Npdsplay dll Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) plug-in for Mozilla browsers

It shows here version 52. The current release is 52.5.0 and you should be running the ESR Version to get Security Updates, install from here : https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/ Note : Legacy Extensions will be deleted or removed in any version update after May 2018.

I just updated Firefox to the new 52.5.0 version, then I rebooted my computer. It is still crashing, and showing a little box that reads Plug In Container Exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. I need a new solution as this just started like a week or two ago and it is making my computer unusable. I have run allllllll my virus software and there was no problem this is a Firefox problem only.

I tried to do this but got this message:

For statistical purposes, we don't need every crash report and sometimes we decline the submission of a crash report as a form of throttling. If you'd like to see your crash report, type about:crashes into your location bar and your report will be automatically submitted to our server where we'll give it priority processing.

Thank you for reporting your crashes.
