Firefox Still Dodgy
Even after the latest upgrade, firfox on the msprime systems is still apt to get into a state in which one can't open new windows. I've created a script which will clear the locks without requiring a reboot:
foxhunt Usage: /usr/local/bin/foxhunt --show|--kill Looks for stray lock files which produce this error: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system. --show Show processes and lock files. --kill Terminate processs and remove lock files.
