    It contains plug-ins that users want and often those plug-ins have questionable scripts. Often it results in Firefox showing "NOT RESPONDING" and often crashes my entire computer forcing a hard reboot. Otherwise I simply kill the process and restart Firefox, but it's a royal pain that ought to be dispensed with altogether.

    This is safe, and not a threat. Plugin-container does not crash Firefox. It is exactly what it says, a program to separate Firefox from third-party plugins which crash all the time, such as Flash player, which is notoriously unreliable and insecure.
