Firefox Flash plugincontainer CPU hog with F-Secure DeepGuard
With F-Secure DeepGuard enabled, it is impossible to play Flash (and other stuff) in Firefox on Windows 7 32 bits. CPU on one of the cores goes to maximum, caused by the plugincontainer process and Firefox becomes unresponsive. With DeepGuard disabled, everything works as it should and plugincontainer is behaving nicely: no CPU, only Flash is using resources.
Please look into this issue as I'm now forced to disable DeepGuard to have a proper experience. Thanks.
which version of Firefox are you using?
Which F-Secure product and version are you using? DeepGuard is a feature, unfortunately we cannot get an idea what product you are using.
Is the "use advanced process monitoring" feature for Deepguard activated? Have you tried only disabling advanced process monitoring but overall leaving DeepGuard activated?
Thanks for your input.
Thank you for your response.
F-Secure through XS4ALL. I'm sorry I can't find any about box in your product. So I too have no idea which product I'm using. Your product's UI seems to be lacking this information.
I did some experimenting and disabling advanced process monitoring seems to be sufficient, thank you. I suggest you publish this on the Mozilla site since the general consensus there is that F-Secure with Firefox is a troublesome combination.
I am currently on Firefox version 13 and am about to update it. I just hope I won't encounter this one.
I had precisely this problem. I can confirm that the problem is solved bvy leaving DeepGuard enabled and only disabling the suboption "use advanced process monitoring.

The process that starts maxing out on cpu is plugin-container.exe.
Should be easy enough problem to recreate, and a bit of Googling turns up plenty of other people having the same problem.
