In addition to other answers there is a problem I encountered killing Firefox.

Previously I could usesudo killall firefox. Now that has no effect and pgrep firefox finds nothing.

For me to kill an unresponsive Firefox session I now need to use:

sudo killall /usr/lib/firefox/firefox

Note above problem isn’t limited to Ubuntu 18.04 as I’m using Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS.
