If anyone wants to disable the plugin container, read this: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/The%20Adobe%20Flash%20plugin%20has%20crashed#Disable_hang_protec...


Note that the above referenced KB article is about disabling the timeout and not about disabling the container process. To disable the container process you need to sett all dom.ipc.plugins.enabled prefs to false.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin-container_and_out-of-process_plugins

Same problem here. The problems started after the previous update. The problem is getting worse after Firefox updated itself a few days ago. I have 3.6.4
