maybe this can help to fix a problem that occurres after i installed the better privacy plug in. since then firefox will not close down when i execute the quit firefox command. in the mac os x application dock it will still show as active after closing all browser windows. only a force quit will shut down the application

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install better privacy plugin and use browser
3.confirm to delete all files with better privacy
4.application still active in dock although windows closed force quit manager with apple alt esc
6.force quit firefox
7.application closed

the current update for better privacy seems to fix the problem....
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.

You can also try to reproduce in Firefox 4 Beta 8 or later, there are many improvements in the new version,
