Widespread "Firefox is already running" problem suggests it is not closing properly - is Mozilla fixing this?

Several people including me have reported a problem when closing Firefox and then attempting to re-open it. The message "FF is already running and must be closed...." appears, yet the taskbar does not show an active FF. At that point it is necessary to use Task Manager to close the old run. 1. This did not always happen on my computer- has started recently. 2. Most of the time it is in fact possible to open multiple versions of FF without difficulty. This problem only seems to happen if I close the first session and then immediately try to open a new one. So my question is what causes this, not what workaround can to used when it occurs.

I was updating Adobe Reader 9.x to 10, and when Adobe offered the chance, I followed the

directions and clicked on the file. For some reason I got two progress bars of installation

status. One of which was Adobe Reader X, the other was "Google Chrome". When all was complete, I

had a shortcut placed on my desktop labled Google Chrome. I did not click on this icon to this

day. FireFox's homepage is Google. Now is FireFox utilizing this new google download in any way,

and what is the shortcut on my desktop for? When FireFox opens with Google, it appears no

different that it ever did. I wanted to use "Add or Remove programs" to delete this "Chrome"

deal, but I'm not sure if that would mess up FireFox in any way. I hate when these kind of

surprises happens. Please Advise ... HELP !!!! pdh

Netflix and Hotmail are the main problem. Both of them are are asking me to update my browser. I already have Firefox 3.6.22 installed. Disabling any and all Plug-In's has done nothing.

I think it may be a configuration problem in my About:Config, but I do not know what it is. Is there a way to force Firefox to report a certain version to websites?
