Revert "Bug 1261416 - Rename firefox-plugin-container back to plugin-container to satisfy Flash's protected mode checks, and ensure that we launch the correct binary r=ted" because of widespread breakage due to whitelisted executable names in third parties This reverts commit 2d44e8ffaf63a32292f8e5b8fdd1485d0a462afc.
