Yes, both with Thunderbird and Firefox  on my netbook.  Even worse, closing 
Thunderbird let it running and, apparently, an instance of Firefox that I had 
not started.  I had to kill both.  Very strange.  The good news is that a 
recent update seems to have got rid of the Firefox oddity.  The bad news is 
that Thunderbird still isn't closing down properly.

Even stranger.  This laptop and that netbook run 
thunderbird-3.0-2.3.beta2.fc11.i586 yet the problem doesn't occur on this
