    Firefox-bin not closing

    Can anyone tell me why (on occasions but not always) the FIREFOX-BIN process is not being automatically closed when I close the Firefox browser ?

    I know that I can close the process by going into SYSTEM MONITOR and closing it manually (which is what I have been doing when it is not automatically closed) but I don't think I should be having to do that.

    Thanks.

    I have this problem before when using the stock Firefox on my Lucid (not sure what version are you using).

    Should be the flash player, cuz I had tried uninstalling it and the problem was gone. But once I reinstalled it back, the problem came back again.

    I have now upgraded to Firefox 7 and the problem is gone.

    Having the same issue with the latest LTS version of Ubuntu. This started happening after the latest Firefox update a couple of days ago. This is FF v3.6.23

    Yes, that is the same Firefox version I have.

    Any idea as to the cause of this or when it might be fixed.

    Is getting sort of annoying.

    Thanks.

    I don't see any Firefox 7 being offered for installation by Ubuntu !!!

    Thanks.

    Hi there,
    I had the same issue on Hardy, Karmic and now on Lucid.
    I am not quite certain yet, but it seems the problem occurs after doing an update of Firefox simultaneously with an update of FlashPlayer.
    Still have to check it out once (should have two machines to check it out properly), but I would suggest the next time the Update Manager offers updates for Firefix as well as for FlashPlayer, you perform these updates separately.
    Good luck!

    create a wrapper and log then check log at next occurance...

    alias firefox="script.sh" >> .bashrc

    script.sh::
    /usr/bin/firefox >> ~/firefox.log

    u may want to redir stderr to stdout too...

    Same problem here. I just disabled the flash plugin and no more problem.
