Yes, actually, this is Firefox. When you run "firefox", you're actually running
a wrapper script that does several things before launching the actual
firefox-bin binary. I've seen quite frequently that Firefox doesn't truly "die"
when you close it (Thunderbird, Icedove, and Iceweasel all exhibit this
behavior). You likely still have processes running that are holding your ssh
session(s) open.
