The Firefox 3 instance that will not die

Firefox 3 seems to have some nice features but it's a little crashy for me.

I downloaded the new beta of Firefox 3 and I can't seem to get it to run for more than about a minute. It seems to crash everytime I submit a form (which I need to do for this blogging tool) and in it's last attempt I've reached a new ability to not be able to kill the process in any way.

Before you ask, yes I tried to force-quit. I also went to the command-line in an attempt to recall my Unix days and kill-9 the process. Sadly, nothing works and I actually have to reboot and uninstall FF3. I am guessing the fact that (firefox-bin) appears in parentheses is a bad thing.

This is my own fault for not paying attention on a conference call.
