Hi Daniel,

Is it on Unix? I think on most unixes, mozilla is a script that
at the end runs mozilla-bin (or generally does something). So
when you try to destroy the process, it actually doesn't run anymore

You might try running directly mozilla-bin, which I don't recommend.
I know that this isn't going to be very helpful, but can't you just
let it run and leave it to the user?
