Disable 'plugin-container' in FF 17?

I've done it before with previous versions of FF but I forgot how. It's very simple, I want to disable this 'plugin-container.exe' and let the plugins run within the FF.exe thing.

The previous version I WAS (no italics) using I had it disabled. I clicked 'About FF' to figure out what version I was using and this farging thing just automatically updated and now I have to deal with this greedy plugin container.

So, I do this?

1: type in about:config 2: look for (need file/field names) 3: change certain fields to 'false'

Again, I just need the field names for 2 and 3. Please don't refer me to some useless link.

Which prefs do you currently have if you search for dom.ipc.plugins.enabled on the about:config page?

One more time...setting dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to false DOES NOT STOP PLUGIN CONTAINER!!!! Please stop giving this answer as a solution, Cor-el. It is simply wrong.
