When i exit firefox3, it stills run in the background and i need to kill it manually, this problem is from firefox3 beta4, but its also in the nightly builds wich i currently use. also tried different pakages ( vanilla from firefox.com, swiftfox ) they also have that problem. Running archlinux up-to date

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start firefox3
2.Close it

tried with safe mode, it also doesn't work. But i have run firefox from command line and firefox was still running in the command line although i have close all the windows. Also i tried with and without extensions, i always get the same result/
I have the same problem. I am running windows XP. After browsing the internet and shutting down firefox3.0.1, firefox continues to run in the background. I have to restart my computer to get firefox to work. Did not have this problem with firefox2.
do you still see this issue in Firefox 3.6 started in safe mode?
