Close: #3310
Similar to that:

after open last document (from menu) we should also close filemanager instance.

This change fix problem: #3310 (Menu with plugin isn't synchronized)

No similar problem if, when being in FileManager, you launch History, and open a document from there?

I remember I did look at something like that around the time I fixed "UIManager to not paint widgets covered by a full screen widget", for situations where we don't close the FileManager while opening reader.
I had a patch (that I never PR, don't remember why I didn't) with something like your fix, plus this:

--- a/frontend/apps/reader/readerui.lua
+++ b/frontend/apps/reader/readerui.lua
@@ -439,6 +439,10 @@ end

 local _running_instance = nil
 function ReaderUI:doShowReader(file, provider)
+    local FileManager = require("apps/filemanager/filemanager")
+    if FileManager.instance then
+        FileManager.instance:onClose()
+    end"opening file", file)
     -- keep only one instance running
     if _running_instance then

(again, there could be reasons - or none - why I didn't push that - I just don't remember them...)

Your fix looks much better. We can always close FM before opening document.
I forgot that we can also open book from history, search result, open with, and dropbox, ftp, opds after download.

There may be still a case to check for: when opening a book fails (like, rename a mp3 to .epub or .pdf): do we get back to somewhere :) or do koreader exits (because no widget left to show)?

I don't think that should be a problem. Quitting for that reason is what happened before I added this to the document opening process about a year ago:

if not document then
text = _("No reader engine for this file or invalid file.")

Edit: in #2956
