Sometimes when Firefox closes, it leaves a 48K stub in memory on Windows 7. I have a utility program to clean off my cache, cookies, and so on, It tells me Firefox is still loaded after I have closed it. When I look in the Task Manager, I see it in the running processes holding 48K of RAM.

This happened

A few times a week

== Shortly after installing Window 7 Professional
