An instance of QL is already running...but it isn't !
Today, QL crashed after a ctf match, forcing me to restart the browser as the complete Firefox froze and i had to kill the process. When i restarted FF and went to QL again, i couldn't login, a message pop up said "an instance of QL is already running", and i could "reload" ( leading to the sae popup box again ) and "logout". When i logout, and tried to log in again, the same message popup was once again keeping me from playing.
I restarted the PC, waited 6 hours and still the message box pops up aggain and i can't even login.
What's happening ?
Try re-installing the plugin. Thats the obivos thing to do
that did not help. calling the support ? no help at all.
Why did i go premium ?
about:config in the address bar
Say ok, then scroll down to dom.ipc.plugins.enabled and set it to false.
Also keep in mind that you're looking for plugin-container.exe in task manager if you wish to force close QL. So if you have a stray one that's why you're getting the error.
Dude I am having similar issues just trying to send a trace through the support page but I have to completely shut down and restart quake
You'll have to be more specific.

It's a problem with Firefox 22 (the current version). You can downgrade to FF 21 or wait for an update of either FF or QL (QLPP18 will hopefully come first).
Don't do it! It can and will cause problems with QL's performance and stability.

This problem is the same thing I encountered. I have been unable to log in also, same "Fatal Error". I'm writing this now because I think that I'll be unable to log in for another week.
I have got an automated response back from "support" but to actual communicate.? Nah not yet. So I'll try a few games on my "new" premium account and have some fun. I didn't lose any sleep over this.
Time for a little pwnage!
same Problem here, I run it on IE 10
