You're right--now that you mention it, I did have to use firefox to pay
bills.  However, this month, I think you're in for a surprise.  You may
need my complex, sophisticated script, killfire.sh

FPID=$(pgrep firefox)
kill $FPID

as you can't close it with a mouseclick when it does this. 

Neither my wife nor myself had any problem last month.  

FWIW, if you run into the same problem, I solved it by temporarily
commenting out the flash entries in /etc/libmap.conf.  I forget if I had
to log out or just restart X.  If they don't change their site, I
imagine I'll make a script to temporarily sub libmap.conf with one that
doesn't have flash enabled. 

(This is assuming that you use the linuxpluginwrapper port to get flash
working with firefox.)

Riley: Buffy . . . I feel like we've gotten really close. At 
least I thought we had. I don't know much about Angel or your 
relationship with him . . but . . . all I ask is . . if you're 
gonna break heart, do it fast. 
Buffy: What? You think that Angel and I...
Riley: Didn't you? 
Buffy: No. Of course not. How can you even ask me that? 
Riley: I don't know. Xander said... 
Buffy: Xander?! Oh, he's the deadest man in Deadonia.
