Closing Firefox in a particular time

Hello guys You know there are useful commands like "shutdown 01:28" on the terminal in Linux. But I need close only firefox because I don't want to close the entire system.

I need to close Firefox or any tab in an hour or half-hour or an adjustable time.

Do you have any suggestions for me? Thanks

By the way, have I to add tags for rapid solution?

Hi maxemilian, I don't know whether an add-on can schedule Firefox to close (can add-ons close the application?). If not, there must be external utilities for Linux to send a "close window" message to an application to shut it down gracefully. By gracefully I mean not a "kill" command that Firefox would later think was a crash.
