is it possible to end Ibrowser process

I am running Freespire, and every once in a while my firefox browser crashes on me, and if i try to start a new browser it says "you cannot start another browser until you end the process or restart your computer" rebooting is kind of a pain, anyone know a way i can end the process quick and easy?

Try [ctrl] + [esc] this usually brings up the process list, you can then select firefox and kill it.
