User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0
Build ID: 20111104165243

Steps to reproduce:

Close Firefox window on Windows XP


Actual results:

Every time I close firefox window, the following things happen:
* the window disappears
* if at least one plugin-container process is active, their number remain unchanger; but if no plugin-container is there, a lot of plugin-containers suddenly appear
* Firefox process start growing and usually stops at 190.000 / 200.000 KB
* If I don't close firefox process, the system freezes


Expected results:

I think it's obvious

I forgot:
if a Facebook page was open, after SEVERAL minute an alert appears, telling me that a JavaScript is slowing down the browser, and asking me if I want to close it.

No such issue ever happened on Firefox 7.
