Why is auto-ndiswrapper asking me to restart firefox?

Asked by Zoubidoo

Why am I being prompted to restart Firefox when I run auto-ndiswrapper?

Pop-up window says: Close firefox. Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing firefox process, or restart your system.

$ sudo ./Auto-NDIS-0.1/auto-ndis.py
Auto-NDISwrapper 0.1
Please remember to always try to use the latest version of NDISwrapper with this script

Nils Schlupp (nilsschlupp) said :

what happends here is that auto-ndis tryes to open said url for you, so you can fetch the driver manually. either try running it right after a clean reboot, where no firefox is running, or just copy the displayed url and download the driver.

Can you help with this problem?
