Are you familiar with plugin-container.exe in FF

I want to disable it, but I have some questions

This is what I found;

You can disable the plugincontainer.exe by
1) going typing in about:config in the address bar 2) type in "dom.ipc" 3) disable the 4 values that say true

However when I get there it looks like this ;

dom.ipc.plugins.enabled default boolean true

dom.ipc.plugins.java.enabled default boolean false

dom.ipc.plugins.parentTimeoutSecs default integer 0

dom.ipc.plugins.processLaunchTimeoutSecs default integer 45

dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs default integer 45

dom.ipc.processCount default integer 1

My question is how to disable the one true I find there ?

What version of F/fox are you using, still 3.6 ?? The version was updated over 6 monfhs ago -

Anyway see this >> To disable, see here >> http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=9530495#p9530495

I would suggest you type about:config in the addressbar (note, that there are no spaces in that) and search for ipc in the seachbox at the top of the about:config page.

No mention of >> type in "dom.ipc"
