 A better workaround: in about:config right-click any line, choose New,
 Boolean, enter the name dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npwrapper.libflashplayer.so ,
 choose false. Then dom.ipc.plugins.enabled can be set to true (default).
 This disables plugin-container for Flash plugin only.
 Other plugins are executed in separate processes
 protecting Firefox from crashing when a plugin crashes.
 However, it's still a workaround, not a fix.
 With this workaround, if Flash plugin crashes, Firefox crashes too.
 Also, the abovementioned report that some non-Youtube videos will not play
 if the parameter is set to false.
