I am looking for a FireFox addin that allows you to view and kill a certain windows process. I have Googled and looked everywhere and I cannot find one.

What on earth do you hope to achieve with this, when you can do it with Process Explorer, to name just one app? – user3463 Jan 15 '10 at 14:32
A firefox addin which will kill windows process ? I don't think you can stop a windows progress from firefox. – Rook Jan 15 '10 at 14:32
@Randolph Potter - hell ... windows are actually pretty good at stopping processes on their own ;-) – Rook Jan 15 '10 at 14:33
@Tom - or did you mean, maybe, to stop a windows process, as in some process (a script or something) in a firefox window, i.e. tab ? – Rook Jan 15 '10 at 14:33
Can you elaborate on your question, just in case we're misunderstanding you - what are you expecting to accomplish that you can't do by simply going into Task Manager using CTRL+SHIFT+ESC? – Kez Jan 15 '10 at 14:59

If you are looking for multi-process features within the browser, similar Google Chrome's Task Manager, this does not yet exist for Firefox, but work is in progress. Ars Technica have a good summary of the planned architecture and progress as of mid 2009.
