When FF is running java applets (in a https secure system) quiting via the normal qai: logout, click on quit symbol (X) or via the file menu does not stop ff from running: the proces is still alive but the FF window is not visible. At restarting FF a warning screen tells that FF is still running and should be stopped first.
The System Momitor shows max. load on one of the Phenom cores and high loads on the others. Typing in input fields reverses direrection (typeing backwards ...)

N.B. this is a reproducable error!

I can stop FF via the System Monitor 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to url: https;www/ (you need an account, but this is the only site where I experience this problem)
2.check one of the tabs and go back to the home tab: the monitor bar tells you a applet is started
3.quid FF (and observe the System Monitor)

Expected Results:  
FF process stops after quiting

When I "enable javascript" is of this problem doesn't exist. But then I use needed functionality.

In my opinion: When closing a FF url (FF tab) all related java processes should stop as well

When java script is disabled in the content preference this problem doesn't exist. But then needed functionality is not available.

In my opinion: closing a FF url (deleting a FF tab) should stop all related [java] processes.

Observation: input fields are working backwards!!!! Even in other open tabs.

Example: typing "Firefox" results in "xoferiF" 

This is weird the first time you experience it ...
