I cannot restart unless I go to the task manager and cancel firefox a second time after the first cancel request!!! Now sometimes this requires a reboot of this system ( 3 gig cpu, full memory and current xp updates and software and latest firefox.. won't use the latest becasue of other problems) I use dual boot xp or vista and have turn off the vista hd to find problem.. Not this system - your system is not existing memory properly after disconnect Dave D&D Hardware/Software R&D Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.you have the info 2. 3. Actual Results: no way to reproduce this maybe - happens every once in a while or about every 4th time Expected Results: Have firefox clear memory when exiting - I've run as many as 6 firefox's at one time and had not seen this problem Left memory clear so to be able to restart again with out re-boot or using task manager
Summary: a bug that is not fixed → firefox.exe doesn't exit completely, preventing me from starting firefox again
Could be caused by older java versions or incompatible add-ons.
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.6 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here.
