Details

Had a weird crash on OSX that left behind a `.parentlock`. 

Can we try to check for running Gecko apps (is this possible?) before complaining about locked profiles?  

Potential problems:
- trashing a .parentlock when it's really in use.  May happen from 'obscure' XUL/Gecko apps.  Do those still exist?

## Is this worth fixing?

- Unknown how often this happens. 
- impact of this breaking is VERY HIGH.  (I.e., it's a 'move to chrome' thing), b/c it's a profile loss  OR a restart.
