Firefox:mac 3.6.2 refuses to open, after invoking "Restart Firefox" command
Summary: Firefox:mac 3.6.2 refuses to open, after invoking "Restart Firefox" command
I'm using Snow Leopard 10.6.2. I updated to 3.6.2 from the automated
update, and after it installed and checked add-on compatibility, Firefox
refused to open anymore, even after reinstalling.
I tried uninstalling 3.6.2 including removing related files, and
reinstalling but the same problem arose. Problem seems to be limited to
3.6.2, as after reinstalling a fresh copy of *3.6* from scratch there
isn't any problem now.
Seems like 3.6.2 can..."X"ing out of Firefox leaves Firefox running

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

I do NOT like the new "look and feel" of Firefox 3. I don't need/like

it look the same as Firefox 2 with white/readable tabs. I do not like
the "long" version of history. I am quite happy just seeing the http's.

Upon closing Firefox 3.0 beta 1 for Windows(XP), upon trying to start
Firefox again, Windows told me that "Another instance of Firefox is
already running..." however, it did not appear in the process manager.
After trying Firefox 2.x and then trying 3.0b1 again, Firefox works fine.

I'm getting sick of it! It seems like every time Firefox updates itself
(without asking, of course), it gets worse. I am on my computer off and on
all day long and probably open Firefox 3 dozen times during the day. But I
can depend on at least a half dozen times a day when I get that "Firefox is
already running" error. Then I can go into task manager and kill it and
it's OK again for a while. People have been bitching about this like
forever! How come no one can figure out how to fix it?

I recently downloaded a couple of extensions.
I found them on the same web site as a certain Thunderbird extension
that looked interesting. They did not install directly --
all that was offered was (for each) a .XPI file to download to someplace.
I did my best to figure out where.
This morning I needed to log out and back in again.
When I started up Firefox,
it asked me if I wanted to install those two extensions.
(Apparently I guessed correctly re where to download them.)
I said yes, and it proceeded.
After a very long delay, it started up a real browser window.

Is the message I get when I try to start Firefox; I do the ctrl-alt-del
rotuine and it does not list Firefox as running. If I restart, Firefox will
start up fine, but if Iclose it during a session, the scenario continues.
Any hints here?? This started after updating yesterday to 184.108.40.206

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.

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
