here are 3 ways:
1) killall firefox
2) ps -ef | grep firefox
then:
kill -9 firefox PID
3) Run "xkill" then click on the firefox window.

You don't need to be root unless root started the proccess. The user that starts a proccess should have full control over it. You can see the user that owns each process by running:
ps -ef
