Cannot kill an already running profile!
OS>XP>ff3.6.19., not interested in upgrading right now. i know its hard to diagnose someones pc problems in a forum, but here goes. i have 2 profiles & 2 problems. i can't kill the 1st profile, been running since yesterday, its probably half way to china by now. its listed in the profiles.ini file, but of course its not in the task mgr. i did a "firefox files" search to include hidden files & found the profile folder for it, but inside it only shows 5 files>cache,offline cache,xpc.mfl,uxl.mfl,&urlclassifier3.sqlite. is there any secret insider way to kill it? i've tried all the methods on mozillazine & support.mozilla, ask & google searches, to no avail. rebooted many times, doesn't work. tried to create a 3rd profile, clicked to open it, & my 2nd profile opens instead, so for some reason now i can't create any new profiles. its listed in the p-mgr & profiles.ini file. also i reformatted my pc a few days ago, re-installed ff 3.6.18, pages loaded fast, installed same 4 extensions previously had along with a few of the same programs, same firewall, no problems there. updated to ff 3.6.19 2 days ago & now it takes TWICE as long to load pages. very SLOW. can't figure out why, i know its not the extensions. i'm getting headaches sitting here for hours trying to sort it all out. THANX for your time/help anyone, SORRY for the long post.
