bash-4.2$ pulseaudio --kill
W: [(null)] core-error.c: Unable to convert error string to locale, filtering.
E: [(null)] main.c: Failed to kill daemon: No such process

The other two trigger no complaints, but nothing changes in terms of
progress bar, even killing FF and restarting it. I've also tried in
safe-mode, no joy.

If it works on your system, there must be something wrong in my
