I just noticed the a process named Plugin-Container.exe running on my laptop
I was immediately alerted as the name Plugin-Container seemed very unfamiliar and I thought that I might have got a virus.

Anyway, a bit of quick investigation revealed that this is nothing harmful Plugin-Container.exe is a process related to Firefox browser and is used by Firefox for managing video plug-in like Adobe FLASH and Quick Time, basically the plug-ins have been moved to a new process of their own so any problem or crash of the plug-in will not effect the main Firefox.exe process

It is a new released feature and is present in Firefox 3.6.4 which was just released on 22nd June. Now I must give myself a pat on back for the watchful eyes 🙂
