What did you do?
1. Firefox update
2. Change privacy settings to user defined.
3. Close Firefox

What happened?
Firefox runs often still in background.

What should have happened?
Firefox should close.

Is there anything else we should know?
When I create a new profile with the same settings, firefox work fine until next update. 

I know, that the problem "Firefox is already running but is not responding" is known, but now I am sure, that updating Firefox is involved. The other cause is to set privacy settings to user defined (Esp. visited sites & download chronicle). Check and solve that! Since years I wait for. You can contact me by email, if you need more information.

Hero, I'm going to close this bug.  It doesn't involve MDN, where it's filed against, and it's not a security bug.  If this is a problem you are experiencing with Firefox, please feel free to open up a bug with the product as Firefox -> General, making sure to include as much information about your system (OS, Firefox version, etc.) as possible.

Thanks, and good luck!

I never said, MDN is involved! Maybe the formular is broken. I've just opened a new bug report as general. It's not my problem, when you ignore my report. I don't create another bug report. Done that two times. You ignore this bug since years! Do it by yourself! I'll use an other browser now.
