If Firefox is running in the background, you can "kill" it in either of two ways:

(1) Restart Windows

(2) Task Manager (press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the task manager) -- on the Processes tab, look for firefox.exe and plugin-container.exe and use the End Process button to terminate them (after allowing them a little time to close themselves; 30 seconds usually is enough)
