Subject: [gentoo-user] Seamonkey/Firefox not closing processes
Date: Tue, 25 Jun 2013 03:06:52
1 Howdy,
3 I noticed something over the past week or so that is a bit odd. I
4 started using multiple sessions for Seamonkey and Firefox. I moderate a
5 website and use Firefox for it but I am generally just plain old me. I
6 use a separate session when I need to moderate something. I also
7 started using Seamonkey in a similar way. I have one session for my
8 regular stuff and a separate session for watching videos and such.
9 Helps me to keep bookmarks separate too. This has worked great until a
10 week or so ago.
12 I notice that now if I close a Firefox session or even close both
13 sessions, Firefox is still running as a process. If I try to open it
14 again, I get the warning that the session is already running, even tho I
15 closed it and it is gone. I get the same thing from both Seamonkey and
16 Firefox. I don't recall any upgrade that started this, although it
17 could be one that did it. I also don't know what is actually supposed
18 to kill those processes. I use KDE4 of course and here is a list of
19 other info below. I can confirm they are running with ps aux | grep
20 <seamonkey or firefox> so it is detecting it correctly.

53 Is this a bug or some setting I missed somewhere? If a bug, whose
54 package should I file it against?
56 Also, when I close one and restart, I have to kill the process that is
57 still running. Is there anyway to tell what process goes with which
58 session?
60 Thanks much.
