Stop Firefox plugin-container.exe Process

Steps to stop plugin-container.exe process:

  • Open Firefox web browser.
  • Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter key.
  • A warning will appear. Ignore it and press the “I’ll be careful, I promise!” button.
  • In the Filter field type dom.ipc. Six preferences will appear for the filter dom.ipc.
  • Ignore first and last preferences (dom.ipc.plugins.enabled and dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs). Toggle (double-click) each of the four remaining preferences to change the value from “true” to “false“.
  • That’s it. For help, take a look at the screenshot.
