Add confirmation prompt before deleting active containers tabs?
1. Go to about:preferences#containers 2. Add a couple new tba containers. 3. Open a few links in the new tab containers. 4. Go back to about:preferences#containers. 5. Delete the container tabs by clicking on the [Remove] buttons next to the container names. ### Actual results: Tab containers are deleted without any sort of confirmation. ### Expected results: Not sure if we should add a "Are you sure?" confirmation, although it isn't a huge catastrophe if you delete the container. But if you go to about:preferences#privacy and deselect the "Enable Container Tabs" checkbox, you _do_ see a "Close All Container Tabs? If you disable Container Tabs now, 18 container tabs will be closed. Are you sure you want to disable Container Tabs? [Keep enabled] [Close 18 Container Tabs]" dialog. Not sure if it'd make sense to allow users to blindly delete a container tab without a confirmation if there are zero open tabs, but give them a challenge dialog saying "If you delete 'Banking' Container Tabs now, 4 container tabs will be closed. Are you sure?" style confirmation.
We can probably dupe this to bug#1316740 as they're essentially the same thing. As per bug#1316740comment#2, the default behaviour that was supposed to be implemented in bug#1267916 was to prompt the user whenever they're removing a container that's still being used/opened. Thanks for all the bug report Peter :)
