Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713134347

Steps to reproduce:

Shutdown Windows 7 x64 with Firefox 14.0.1 still open. There are no addons installed in Firefox so the problem has to come from Firefox itself.


Actual results:

Firefox doesn't close and therefor causes Windows to wait forever.


Expected results:

Firefox should have closed so that Windows can shutdown correctly

I don't seem to be the only one experiencing this. A search on google brings up hundrets of board entries all over the net discussing this problem without result.

There are also several bugs reported here dating back years but they all have been closed though the problem still seems to exist.

This bug is realy a big problem.
If someone in our company does not recognize that the shutdown process of his PC hangs and walks away from the PC, some other people can take over the PC and do what ever they want with this "stolen" identity.
Such a bug should be handled with more severity.

Regardless of what firefox does, it seems to me that not shutting down is Windows' problem.

That said, do you still see this problem?
