  I exit firefox to do other  requests and try to restart and get the message that  firefox is still running after a cancellion request...  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

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. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
