how to kill one mozilla browser process?


hi
openining multiple mozilla browsers end up with just one process id , then how do i close one browser window using commands? kill <mozilla process > will close ALL mozilla windows.
when I use mozilla & i see a different process ID , this process id is not listed in ps -e , but when i kill <mozilla & process id>, it says process can't not be found.
I need to close mozilla browsers one by one using commands, please help.
thanks

if they are listed as one process id, then i think all will close altogether.
i dont think you can close just one.


btw, why do u need commands?
i mean, if you have mozilla running, obviously u have X, why not just use the little exit button?

how are u running mozilla then?
it dont work in command line, does it?


same pid means they all run at same time on processor.
i doubt you can close just one, if tehy all have same id.
