Why won’t Firefox close?

I have a Mac and a PC and have the same problem on both! I end up forcequitting on the Mac and using Task Manager on the PC. This has been going on for 2 weeks. Why does this happen, I’m almost ready to give up on FF.

    Firefox doesn't close or when you open it again the Windows appear again. To make Firefox open a fresh window, go Tools --> Options --> General --> and select from the drop down box "Show Blank Page"

    JDEJ,

    is it a raw Firefox installation on both computers or do you use the same addons on both? Did you try to disable all addons? There may be a conflict.

    If disabling all addons fixes the problem you can turn them back on one after the other and you will eventually find out which one is causing the issue.
