Quitting FF in any way (including the "restart" option from the menu bar) leaves the process in the background. It has to be ended manually.
It happened with 55 and it still happens after updating to 56.

Have you tried starting Firefox in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

I just did. I don't experience the problem when I quit in safe mode.
