I'm consistently getting "plug in container has encountered an error" messages while using Firefox 11.0.

You originally posted your question in Am I infected? What do I do?.

There is no indication that your system is infected, the post was in the wrong forum, so it was moved to the more appropriate forum.

There is no link because one is not needed. When you click on the topic link in Am I Infected you are automatically redirected to the post in the forum it was moved to-in this case Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications which you will see at the top of this page.

(I did not move it)

You likely have a corrupt Firefox plugin or extension. You will need to run firefox with all your plugins and extensions disabled or more easily run in safe mode. Then see if the issue reoccurs, if not enable your plugins one by one to see which one it is. When you find the plugin or extension that creates the error uninstall it and reinstall it.

Thanks Animal, that makes perfect sense and I'll give it a try.

For an easy test, you can run FF without the add-ons by clicking on 'Help' then 'Restart with Add-ons Disabled'.
