check browser plugin if it's malware

hi,

is there any way to check if your browser plugin doesn't contain malware code.
i'm useing firefox and have noscript, popup blocker plugin and extended cookie blocker...now my browser has free acces to the internet means plugins have too.
are they secure at all

I heard there is a 3th party software which can monitor procesess... so it can monitor firefox proces if it isn't injected with other proces.

any idea about this?

I would think you want to remove all malware, not just browser plugin. Run your antivirus to do a scan and also run Malwarebytes (free version here: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com)

Hy,
actualy I just wanna check if plugin contains malware (created by it's developer)
and if there is a tool which can monitor "firefox.exe" as a proces to se if it's clean an has no strange code injected into firefox.exe.
standard AV-s can't do that.

Native Quicktime Browser Plugin
Hey everyone, Isn't there supposed to be native support for quicktime in Windows 7? If I go to the movie trailers page on Apple I can't play any of the movies. Was support only added for for size movie downloads and no browser integration? Dave
