View Full Version : [SOLVED] 10.10 - Firefox 3.6.23 - still running after exit

October 30th, 2011, 01:47 AM
I temporarily went back to 10.10 and in so doing have encountered a problem I never had - even when I first installed 10.10 last year.

For some reason, when I exit Firefox it closes the window(s), etc., but the firefox-bin process still runs, which stops me from starting Firefox again until I go in with terminal and kill it.

None of the updates the have run since I went back to 10.10 have made any difference on this as well.

If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

It is happening to me too in 10.04, same FF version.

It doesn't happen every time, but very often. 3 out of 5, if I have to guess.

I have heard that this has become a common problem with multiple versions of Ubuntu.
What version of Ubuntu were you using before you went back to 10.10?

In Firefox, went to about:config, then changed the dom.ipc.* options to false. This seems to have solved this problem. Since flash was also one of those options I was hoping it would solve the flash problems as well, but no luck.
