Have you ever noticed something called plugin-container.exe running on your computer and you didn’t know where exactly it came from? Well, I can ease your mind some because this is from Firefox. Ever since Firefox 3.6.4 this extra process has been in there helping protect your browsing just in case Firefox decides to crash.
After yesterday’s news about the fake Firefox update that is out there in the wild, I thought it might be a good time to go over how you can get your plugins updated. Thankfully, Mozilla has made this really simple with the Plugin Check part of their website.
There has been a pretty cool update to Firefox in the past 24 hours. If a plugin crashes or freezes, it will no longer affect the rest of your browser. You will be able to reload the page, restart the plugin and try again.
