WMS YAHOO plugin don't close firefox in ubuntu 7.10 after fetch the images. Firefox needs to be closed by hand before make a new zoom to the map.
Report from Francisco Santos by mail:
OK, it seems that something has changed in firefox since I developed the plugin (in Ubuntu 7.04 or even before that). As I haven't used it in many months, I didn't noticed it, but the problem seems to be that "/usr/bin/firefox" is now just a script that launches another script that launches the real firefox program. This chain of scripts does not permit the plugin to kill the real process.
I've been looking around a way to kill the real process from java, but didn't find any. It may need a dirty hack for each different OS to find the real firefox process ("taskman.exe" in windos, "ps" in linux, ...).
