I can corroborate, with f8 on i386, no compiz.  There have a been a few times, 
particularly where I had seven or eight Acroreader plugins going in Firefox, 
where exiting with the Firefox red X in the tab would hang other tabs' 
acroread, and drive CPU way up.

While I don't remember this happening a month or so ago (seems related to a 
recent update, maybe), but it could have been happening unaware to me.
