Abstraction is not a bad thing. I am not too fond of nautilus, but to each
his/her own.

I regularly have to kill Firefox. I habitually forget to close Firefox and
then SSH to the same computer from outside (while Firefox continues to run
on  the wrong computer). I need to finish the session and I am thankful to
Firefox for preventing me from doing so, or else inconsistencies, fragmen-
tation or multiplicity arises.

I find that the fastest way to achieve this in KDE is to press CTRL+ESCAPE
and  end  Firefox. From GNOME/Ubuntu (another machine I SSH from),  I  use
'top' or 'ps -aux'. After a while you get used to it: either killing Fire-
fox  or  simply remembering to close Firefox before locking a session  and
leaving the workstation.

Hope it helps,
