Vuze OSX won't Force Quit
Vuze for OSX hasn't been shutting/restarting well, I've had the problem on a dozen occasions since the start of 2016.

The Dock's indicator shows Vuze remains open, yet Force Quit fails to respond. Activity Monitor shows no sign of Vuze within the CPU/Memory tabs preventing lookup of the PID, and it's also grayed out in the Energy tab just like any other closed app. I'm unable to properly shutdown as a result and it's pretty much the only reason for my occasion system reboot nowadays.

How can I resolve this or at least kill and restart Vuze without having to restart my system (which is a massive pain considering how many Chrome tabs I tend to have open concurrently)....?

MacBook Pro (Retina, Late 2013) OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
Vuze (recently verified it's updated but cannot show the number now unless I restart)

I, too, have had the same exact issues as OP on my Late 2013 MBP-r. I've resorted to shutting down via holding the power button, but I'd really like to avoid this if possible.
I have a workaround suggestion that might help: Use the UNIX command line via the terminal application to search for the Vuze process and kill it.

Launch Applications/Utilities/terminal

ps -ef | grep -i vuze
  501 28171   194   0  4:29pm ??        66:11.67 /Applications/
  501 29554 29544   0  9:24pm ttys000    0:00.00 grep -i vuze

The second number, 28171, is the process ID (PID).

kill -9 28171

The application should shut down pretty fast.
