From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801 BuildID: mozilla-0.9.3 It seems that whenever I close mozilla after launching from windows 2000 sp2, version mozilla-0.9.3 it slows down my machine quite a bit. So I look in task manager and mozilla.exe is stilling running under processes, not applications. I end that process and my machine returns to its kind faster self. Not to sure if mozilla.exe is supposed to remain runnning. I have selected to launch at boot which does seem to speed up launching of mozilla. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.start mozilla 2.close mozilla 3.click on processes tab,look in task manager there it is Actual Results: see the mozilla.exe running Expected Results: I think it should completely end and not show up because when I end the icon in the taskbar remains I also maybe would like to add that it would be nice if there was a way to launch mozilla under linux faster.
Using the Quick Launch feature of Mozilla, it will continue to run (as a process in the background) even if you close your browser windows. To exit Mozilla from running in the background, you can right-click the system tray icon, and "Exit" will end the program. As far as I know, having mozilla running in the background is an intended feature. Whether or not you like that feature is another story :) Does that answer your question/ solve your problem?
marking invalid A mozilla process is running in the backlground if you select quicklaunch. (Please reopen if the Mozilla fastload process is using more than ~3 CPU after you closed mozilla)
