Slack 12.2 & Firefox


12.2 is up to date and am running the Firefox from Slackbuilds.
There was an update to FF a few months ago.
Since then FF "hangs" when I close it out.
It does seem to shut down better from the home page instead of whatever site I happen to be on at the time of shutting down.
I do have a few addons to FF but they were there before the update with no issues.
The addons are Gmarks [disabled], Rankchecker, Scribefire, SEO for FF [disabled], SEO Toolbar, Weatherbug and Web Developer.
I haven't done any "fixes" so I'm fairly certain I didn't create my own problem.
Anyone else having this issue?

Hi,

Which version of FF are you currently using?

Not sure if this applies to FF 3, but it does to FF 3.5+...

I have seen this. I think it has to do with the SQL db finishing up transactions/updating, etc. This manages your bookmarks, history, etc. You might need to "vacuum" the db once in a while if it is quite large...or just let it do its thing. It should only hang a few seconds at most.

I have one computer that does this, and most of the time I just shutdown the box regardless of whether or not FF is ready. That is why you have crash handling, right :-p

It should not do this with a fresh profile. If that is the case then it must be something else.
