Hi All,

When using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox I keep getting from time to time a warning telling Me that Plugin Container has stopped working, I have the latest version of Flash player and Nvidia Drivers for My Graphics card but the problem still keeps arising from time to time ..!

My Graphics card is a Nvidia AMD Radeon HD 7900 series.

Cheers

Plugin-container.exe manages plugins in Firefox. There are as many plugin-container.exe processes as plugins launched since the Firefox session startup. Your plugins may include Shockwave Flash, Java, Silverlight...

Look at your plugins (not extensions) and try isolating the one causing the crash.

What was your solution?
Hi Phantom010, I looked at My Plugins as You suggested ( thru Firefox ) and updated them. The thing I dont understand is that I installed the most recent Flash/Shockwave from Adobe originally. Anyway everything seems to be behaving itself now.
Many thanks for Your help and advice.
Regards
Jumbo1.

Flash needs to be updated regularly. Latest version is 16.0.0.296.
