There was recently an AMA (ask me anything) from the FireFox crew on Reddit
(I will try to track it down) and the developers said that this is a known
bug and they are working on it. If you wait a few minutes after closing the
FireFox window, you should then be able to start a new instance.

I will mail out the link when I find it.
