I installed www/linux-firefox from ports (FreeBSD 8.2/amd64). The first 
time it ran, it did some checks. During this time there was an 
unexpected power loss. Since then whenever I try to start linux-firefox, 
I get the error message "An instance of firefox is already. Close it or 
restart your system". But no solution works. I even did a 'make 
deinstall' followed by 'make install clean' a couple of times. All of no 

Can anyone please point out what I need to do to get linux-firefox to 
start ?

Thank you &
