My firefox browser window locks up...I wait way to long and nothing updates, I close the window. Try to open Firefox again, but can't as system detects a copy running. Task manager shows Firefox.exe *32 running. I click on Firefox.exe *32 and click close....wait and nothing closes.

REBOOT - yeah for about 30 minutes when it happens again.
