Windows 7: FF 3.5.1 won't close every time

26 Jul 2009   #1

Windows 10 Pro x64
FF 3.5.1 won't close every time

It doesn't happen all the time but it happens quite a lot.
I close FF using the X top RH corner,all looks good.
Go to reopen and nothing happens.
Start task manager and FF is not present in Applications but in processes firefox.exe is running.
I end ff.exe then start ff and it opens up to the tabs and screen i was viewing earlier when I shut down.
This only started with 3.5 and continued with 3.5.1
Your help would be appreciated.

Windows 7 64-Bit Build 7100

What extensions and add-ons are you running? Any toolbars? Sometimes browsers do not close properly due to those things. I had the same problem with IE7. Steam didnt work so well until i uninstalled an annoying toolbar. Then IE7 closed just fine.

Hi, just uninstall firefox using Revo uninstaller and reinstall it again. This should fix this problem.

vista 32bit - win 7 RC

this happened to me too in FF3. you have to wait for it to end its process automatically or kill it yourself. re-installing will SOMETIMES resolve it, but sometimes it won't. i guess it's worth a try.
