Yeah, that kills the process, but does not fix
the problem. If I killed the process (4277),
then tried to read a FF PDF document again,
process 4277 reappears as defunct.
It turns out that Firefox was gnome session
saved when rebooted and on start up restored
10 FF minimized windows and I did not notice
this until now. The problem is, the restore of the
10 FF sessions were munged.
So I cleared/killed all the FF gnome session saves
and rebooted. Everything is now back to normal.
Thanks for leading me towards the problem.
