this lock file could be left from windows.
did you close ff before shutting down windows?
I have found a file called lock that is a link to 127.0.1.1:+7491 is created and destroyed on mint when ff is started and stopped.
It is in your home directory
the cmga7d9o is gernerated at install of ff i think so that number may change.
so before starting ff in mint look for the lock file and delete it.
then start ff.
