Plugin-container doesn't really add anything. It just stores plugins in a separate process (whereas before they would run in firefox.exe). See What is plugin-container.

So it seems that one of the websites you are on is playing music via a plugin. The next time this happens, can you keep a list what sites you are on, so we can check? Or you can close each tab one-by-one until the the music goes away.

It isn't any of the websites that I'm on because it happens anyway, I can be on any site and it will still play...That's the first thing I checked....

plugin-container is literally incapable of playing music without a website. The next time this happens, please tell us which sites you are on. Thanks.

That sounds like a completely different problem. Joel is getting music that he wants to stop.

In your case, that site uses code:

The "bgsound" tag is non-standard code, that is only supported in IE. See What to do if Firefox won't play any sounds

What about pop-ups? Do you have any other Firefox windows open?
