Plugin-container was introduced with Firefox 3.6.4, released in June
2010, so "ten years" is a slight exaggeration. And it can be only as
"stable" as the plugins it runs. Blame Adobe.

Before its introduction, the same CPU usage was reported for the Firefox
process. The change only makes it (partly) visible who is to blame.

I'm being paid to act weirdly.
