Does anyone feel like telling me anything about thier system. what versions of ubuntu firefox-3 xulrunner-1.9 if this is 64bit or 32 and so on.
I am unable to reproduce this since beta 1.
Marking as incomplete since i dont have enough info on this bug to do anything with. We will change it to confirmed when the team feels we have enough to go on.
Please list all extensions/addons as well

I get the same bug. After closing with several tabs open it refuses to relaunch and gives me the same warning message. Doing a "pkill firefox" in the terminal fixes it and I can then relaunch firefox.

Ubuntu 8.04 32-bit & up-to-date.

Firefox 3.0.3

Firefox Extensions:

Google Toolbar for Firefox
Ubuntu Firefox Modifications
User Agent Switcher

We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.
