Public bug reported:

If the computer is running out of memory and one attempts to shut down
Firefox while there're some scripts that are running continously(*) you
get the "Do you want to stop the script?" message. And that message
actually blocks Firefox from exiting despite the fact that the exit was
initiated before the message appeared.

(*) In my case the script was the Chat-Window script on VK.com (Russian
social media site).
