Running archlinux up-to date

Reproducible: Always

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?

No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.x or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
