Everytime I close Firefox it gives me the message box that firefox has crashed

I close firefox with the X like I close all of my applications but every time I close it I get a popup box saying that firefox has crashed do you want to send a crash report and I can type in what happened. Then I can choose to close firefox or restart it.

You should first update to Firefox 14.0.1. Firefox 3.6 is no longer supported and is vulnerable to multiple known security holes. This will also probably help your crash when closing. by updating you will have a faster, more secure and more stable Firefox that actually gets updates.

Is this specific to the "red X" method? Does the File > Exit method close correctly?
