Firefox plugin container high cpu

Lately the plugin-container task is consuming even more than fifty percent of my CPU (Win 7) making firefox v42.0 (along with everything else) very sluggish. Many times, I deserve to only get firefox to percreate reasonably by repeatedly killing that job. Why does it take so much cpu and also exactly how can I correct that? TIA.

On what site(s) are you seeing this situation? If you are viewing videos once this happens it is most likely a trouble with the Flash plug-in that is leading to the trouble. Do you have the the majority of up to day version of Flash? Do you have hardware acceleration disabled in Firefox? (Tools->Options->Advanced->General tab) Does the exact same point take place if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.classiccomputers.info.org/Safe_mode

I don"t understand of a specific website as soon as this happens however yes tbelow is usually a website up that has flash ads on it (e.g. foxnews.com). Hardware acceleration is allowed. I will try disabling it. I have not tried running is safe mode considering that that will certainly disable some of the add-ons I usage extensively yet I have the right to try it for a while simply to check out. Thanks.

I think I deserve to conclude that the trouble is indeed flash. I closed all pperiods via flash and plugin-container is behaving actually itself. So what is the deal with, if tbelow is one?
