Summary: "X"ing out of Firefox leaves Firefox running 

Comments: 
Scenario.
I open Firefox 3 from my desktop icon.  I work with it and close it by
clicking on the red X in the upper right corner of my window.

Later on I attempt to open Firefox again.  Clicking on the icon sets the
hourglass in motion for a second or two.  Sometimes I get an error
message telling me I already have a Firefox session running and that I
have to close it before I can open a new one.  Sometimes I don't get
that message.  Firefox does not open.  I open Task Manager and look in
applications.  Firefox is listed there.  This should not be as I X'd out
of it earlier.

Firefox add-on "slogger" no longer supported with Firefox 3.x
Hello everyone, I did some research on my own to find a replacement or a way to make it work with Firefox 3.x since I found it so convenient. Since this was not really successful I turn to the group if anyone has advice :-) slogger is an add-on that (as I configured it) keeps a monthly log of URLs that I loaded (with timestamps) and a text-only-version of the pages (named with the timestamp) so that I can do full-text-search. Whenever I didn't remember where I had been seeing some information I searched through these logs and I did find what I was looking for quite ...

Suggest change title of shortcut from "send feedback" to "send firefox feedback"
Name: Stephen, a firefox supporter Product: Firefox Summary: Suggest change title of shortcut from "send feedback" to "send firefox feedback" Comments: I just downloaded FF beta3 and it suggested dragging the feedback button onto the bookmarks toolbar. However once it is there it is not clear to the tester/user some time later that it is for firefox and not one of the potentially-many other applications on their PC. I therefore suggest you change title of shortcut from "send feedback" to "send firefox feedback". No big deal, but an easy...

Firefox should add a "disk cleanup handler" so that Windows "Disk Cleaner" can clear the Firefox cache

"Firefox" or "Gecko"
Hi, In a lot of places in MDN, like in https://developer.mozilla.org/En/DOM/Attr#Deprecated_properties_and_methods one can see a mention of "Starting in Gecko 7.0 (Firefox 7.0 / Thunderbird 7.0 / SeaMonkey 2.4)...". What is in parens is generated by a template. This was relevant when Gecko/Firefox numbers where different, but I'm wondering if this is necessary anymore for webdev-oriented documentation. I think that since Firefox 4, it would be relevant to just write "Starting in Firefox 7..." (even the ".0" can be dropped I think). This i...

"No thanks" to Firefox v5 update in Mac OS X's Firefox v3.6.22.
Hi. When I do an update check, I see "no thanks" button for less than a second. I don't want to upgrade after v3.6.22 (or whatever the latest in v3.6.x series until unsupported). How do I tell Firefox to never check for anything newer than v3.6.x?

How to remove "Set Up Firefox Sync" button and related "Sync" items using userChrome.css on Firefox 4.0 final
I'm reporting this question in hopes someone else will see it. Hi all, I've already done my homework and found a page (http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla/topics/exploitable_vulnerability_in_firefox_sync) detailing the necessary items to be put into userChrome.css. However, when I try the options detailed by the author, I still see that "Set Up Firefox Sync" under Tools > Options > Sync. Basically, it doesn't seem to work. I've pasted the below into my userChrome.css but I still see the Set Up Firefox Sync button. menu[label="Tools"] m...

FireFox does not "Run"
Hi folks, MY nephew just installed Firefox and nothing happens when he tries to run it. He is running Vista (sigh) The install says it installed successfully but nothing happens. Looking in Task Manager shows that Firefox is there but it won't run. Worse, trying to end the process does not work either, we have to reboot to start without it showing up in "processes" We decided to try to run it in Safe Mode, no change. Completely removed it, including profile and started over - again the same result. Can anyone help? Thanks, Fred Fred S ***** wrote: >...

Renaming of "Firefox only" to "Toolkit only"
As discussed on irc, lots of pages have the mention "Firefox only", or "Not in Firefox" [1] [2]. That's not very correct technically, as other apps like XULRunner or Thunderbird are also concerned by the "Firefox only" texts. It was proposed to rename those to "Toolkit only" / "Not in toolkit". Those texts should be templatized for easier management. It was also discussed if pre-toolkit stuff should be supported, but I guess that's another debate ;-) I'm not taking action on this personally, that was to open the d...
