Every time I quit Firefox I get a JAVA error for each open window:

b.getAttribute is not a function

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: Firefox new window
3.quit Firefox
Actual Results:  
Then I press OK and it closes.  Does not hang.

Expected Results:  
Just quit.

Tried several updates, but have had this trouble for a while on both my new laptop and my PowerPC desktop.

That would be JavaScript, not Java. Firefox doesn't use Java by itself.

Do you also see it in Safe Mode (which disables extensions) ?

OK, I tried that and the error goes away.  Sorry, should have tried that before.  Now, how do I figure out which ad-on or extension is doing it?
Go to tools/addons/extensions and disable one half, restart FF.
Disable the other half if you get the error again....

Gotcha.  Thanks.
A hint for future reports. An error message could be meaningless for you but it's the only hint for the experts. You can copy+paste error message in Firefox and such an error message helps a lot if you post them in a bug report. Our crystal balls are overused :-)
