[Bug 308605] Re: [MASTER]Firefox is already running message

At the moment this is anecdotal, but I have experienced this problem
through the entire Firefox 3.0+ lines. Recently, I was addressing some
KDE4 graphical glitches that occurred when using GTK applications:

System Settings -> Appearance -> GTK Styles and Fonts:
"GTK Styles": Usage another style: "QtCurve"
(Hit "Apply" and restart any GTK+ Applications, including Firefox; in the event of this bug, make SURE the process is terminated via 'ps/kill' as documented in previous comments)

After changing this, my rendering glitches in GTK applications running
in KDE4 did stop, which was awesome. Firefox was one such application
that was affected by this (being a GTK+ application).

However, I _also_ have noticed (so far) that all of the instances of the
process not terminating when all of its windows were closed (i.e. this
bug) have also stopped since making that change. I've even tried
changing the setting back and immediately notice the familiar "process
already running" messages reappearing.

Could someone else who is experiencing this using Kubuntu / KDE4 try
making this change and see if your results coincide with mine?
