The only way to close Firefox 3.5 down then is to use the Windows XP
task manager to force the process to die!!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open or start a Firefox 3.5 session
2. After browsing, invoke the File pull down menu, 
3. Select "exit"..........it will then hang
Actual Results:  
The window refuses to close and the only way to exit
this instance is as I stated above via the Windows XP task manager

Expected Results:  
a normal shutdown of the Firefox broswer

This is occurring on a newly downloaded, as of yesterday, July 8,2009
on a Windows XP SP3 installation that is up to date on other patches /
fixes from Microsoft.
