plugin-container is eating 90 percent of cpu when we usually look videos in youtube. Earlier this was not happening. It started in last two days. Kindly request you to solve this problem
Not sure how often
== running flash movies
Have same problem on ubuntu 10.04 and firefox 3.6.6 to solve it - try to renice priority of process plugin-containe, but its unnormal...
Same problem, Firefox 3.6.6, Windows XP. Just started since the latest Firefox update. After the update I got a screen asking me to update to the latest Flash player. When I followed the link the update didn't work despite following the Firefox specific instructions.
Interestingly I don't get the problem when viewing Flash video such as Youtube but PC grinds to a halt when there is other Flash content (like ads) on the page.
Same problem is happening to me CONSTANTLY while viewing shows on netflix streaming. So much so that I can't make it through a 40 minute show without it crashing twice, with plugin-container.exe taking up the same amount of memory as firefox and will randomly ratchet up to a high enough CPU eating level that it'll freeze my computer for a good several minutes or longer until I can finally force kill it.
I've heard suggestions on other forums to just uninstall and install a earlier version of firefox, which I'm about to do. This is certainly annoying.
This is truly embarrassing. Is anyone at Mozilla listening? Why should plugin-container take 94% of my CPU? I'm not even using Flash right now...
My computer nearly stops since updating Firefox (and gaining this Plugin-container.exe abomination). Come on Firefox, I have changed from IE because it is rubbish don't make me think the same about you.
