I suppose you are talking about the plugin. Don't use that. Although VLC is one of the best media players, the plugin is terrible. It crashes Firefox here too and never worked for me like other better plugins.

I recommend removing the vlc plugin completely then install gecko-mediaplayer. You probably have totem-mozilla installed as well, so remove that too.
