The RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin is a plug-in for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer included with the RealPlayer media player software. This plug-in allows users to download and record videos that appear on Web pages. It can cause a variety of problems in Firefox, including blank Web pages, problems with Adobe Flash content and disappearing images. Users can't uninstall the plug-in from Firefox's add-ons dialogue because it's installed in the Windows registry. You can uninstall the plug-in by disabling it in RealPlayer.
