** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox-3.0
  
  When launched with an additional URL parameter Firefox 3.0.10 won't exit
  properly once the last open window closes. The process itself stays
  there and prevents from relaunching the application with a "Firefox
  already running" error message.
+ 
+ This happens even with all extensions/add-ons disabled.

+ This happens even with all extensions/add-ons disabled. Those steps
+ reproduce the issue each and every time on my system :
+ 
+ a) open a console
+ b) launch firefox using the "firefox http://www.google.com" command (or any URL actually)
+ c) exit the frefox window using the window's close button (usually a "X" at the top-right of the window.
+ d) the Firefox window closes but the command-line prompt is not back because the process is still running. Control-C will actually kill the process and bring the prompt back.
