Windows 7: HD Light Comes on when Closing Firefox

HD Light Comes on when Closing Firefox

For a few days now, when I close Firefox, the HD light comes on and runs for several minutes. This has not happened before. I went to Task Manager Processes and it one of the svchost.exe that was running. I clicked on that to see whet Services were highlighted. Here a list, if relevant:

AudioEndpointBuilder - Windows Audio Endpoint Builder

CscService - Offline Files

Netman - Network Connection

PcaSvc - Program Compatibility Assessment Service

SysMain - Superfetch

TrkWks - Distributed Link Tracking Client

UxSms - Desktop Window Manager Session Manager

Is there anything of concern here?

Just an opinion, "SysMain - Superfetch" -- I turned my W7 SuperFetch off, however, that may or may not help in this case.

do not need to auto-load and run in the background.
Go into the "Services" list (services.msc) and then change their startup type to Manual.

Firefox 19.0.2 Crashes Immediately After Closing
Mozilla doesn't seem to have a clue what's causing the crashes. I'm running only one other app which is the newest Flash (from Adobe website). The faulting module is XUL.DLL. Attatched a couple of files from Event Viewer. The "after close" crash is sporatic (maybe once every two or three days)....

Issues with closing Firefox in Windows 7
My apologies if this is posted in the wrong section. I'm having problems closing Firefox in Windows 7. It appears that the program is always still running in the background and uses large quantities of CPU usage. I always have to stop the program in Task Manager or reboot before it will open...
