I've had a strange problem that's been bugging me for awhile. It seems that every couple times I quit Firefox, it will reopen itself automatically. Basically:
- I'll hit cmdq
- Firefox will shut down
- the little 'open' light underneath its icon in the dock will disappear
- suddenly the FF icon will start bouncing and it will open back up
Usually when this happens, my previous session will appear to be loading but all the tabs will stay blank. However, this is not always the case, sometimes my tabs will load. Another thing I just noticed is that after it reopens, Firefox is 'hidden' (like when you click 'Hide Firefox' from the main menu) until I click on it.
If I quit FF a second time, it stays closed. The next time I open FF, my original session will be restored and everything works normally.
This has happened on two different Macs for me, and my wife has occasionally seen this behavior as well. Any ideas on what might be happening, and has anyone else had this happen?
