Firefox is manually closed from JOSM after the dump, because of the
impossibility of doing it within Javascript code (restriction imposed in
JavaScript itself), and is done calling standard java methods (
java.lang.Process.destroy() ). I don't know  the internal mecanism of
creating process in fink, and it why can't destroy them. Maybe java should
also be in fink?
