Every time I exit Firefox, it tells me that it has "crashed" and asks if I want to report the problem. I exited Firefox myself, and yet it's acting as though I hadn't done it- treating it as an error. This notification is from Firefox, and not my OS.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Exit Firefox (X-out or File:Exit)
3.(this is where the crash screen appears)
Firefox crash window appears.
Not shown me an unnecessary crash report.
What extensions are you running ? It seems one of them caused a problem when you try to exit the application.

I have one theme running, everything else was incompatible and not kept when I updated to 3.
An application crash during shutdown is still a bug, just like colliding with the front of your garage when you intended to stop anyway is still a bad thing.
Can you load about:crashes and pull out a crash ID so we can look at the stack trace to try to figure out what went wrong?
why i had been kicked out from the cc list? :(
dunno, michabailey did it, afaict it should be prohibitively expensive to remove someone from the cc list while adding yourself.
michabailey: how / why did you do this?
The same happens to me. Each time I close the browser (Firefox 3.0.5) a crash window appears. My OS is Windows XP SP3. This didn't happen with the previous versions nor with the nightly ones.

As the same issue happens to me I followed your advise and I'm copying the last Crash ID below.
I hope it helps you!
Should you need any additional information, please post it here.
