When I try to close Mozilla, it won't do so. It appears to have closed, but when
I check the Task Manager, it still shows up, gobbling up about 44k of my memory.
Not a significant loss of memory, no, but it also interferes if I intend to do a
uninstall or reinstall of Mozilla, as it won't do so if Mozilla is still active.
I've tried ending the process and the process tree in Task Manager numerous
times. It still does not work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla
2. Close Mozilla
3. Check Task Manager, or attempt a reinstall or uninstall

Actual Results:  
It refused to exit, uninstall or reinstall.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have closed completely.
