After I restarted Firefox (3.6.15) I enabled all plugins back and found out that the plugin-container in the Task Manager is missing, but all plugins are working.

How can these plugins work without the plugin-container? Why is the plugin-container missing?

plugin-container is not supposed to be shown in the taskbar. The only location you are supposed to see the helper process is Task Manager.

And also only after you've loaded a web page that uses a plugin. – Jason Sherman Apr 1 '11 at 15:52
Sorry i meant Task Manager, not Taskbar. – Boris_yo Apr 3 '11 at 12:54
