Firefox plugin-container issue

Every time I look in task manager Firefox 6.0.2 has multiple Plugin-container.exe tasks open. Why is this? There is always 5 or more open, one time I counted 12 separate plugin-container.exe files open. Is this always an issue with Firefox? I have seen this issue since Firefox 4.
