An explanation on Adobe forum ...

      The crash protection feature in Firefox 3.6 is enabled for
      certain  plugins only. The four preferences that we
      modified here specifies four different out-of-process
      plugins. They are  the the NPAPI test plugin, Adobe Flash,
      Apple QuickTime (Windows) and Microsoft Silverlight
      (Windows). These plugins are specified in a separate
      dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.<filename> preference by default is
      set to true. We can disable them by changing their value to
      false. And thus plugin-container.exe will not run. By
      default the preference dom.ipc.plugins.enabled is already
      set to "false". So, no need to touch it. The
      dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs is also not important here as
      other values are false.

(Also, I was reminded of "perlipc" pod related to inter-process
communication in Perl.)
