Hi Dave,

This is not an automagic fix, but, you can do in a terminal "top".
Look for the username that Firefox is hangin for,in the process
list[firefox-bin]. then see process number, then in a terminal do
" kill -9 <processnumber>".
 This will kill ONE running instance of Firefox for that user,,,or,, open
techertool > highlight username >View> Then stop Firefox-bin for that
user. Either way its a lot of leg work for you ,with  many users hanging
on Firefox.. Dont know of an automated way of doing this.
This will at least let Firefox work again for them without rebooting the
server and then really catching all sorts of guff:)..

Hope this helps.
