Hi,

This is a suggestion more than a bug.
Whenever user close a tab with ctrl-w, there are 3 situations:

1. more than one tabs in current window
   mozilla response => close the current tab
2. only one tab on current window
   mozilla response => close the current window
3. only one tab on current winow and current window is the last one
   mozilla response => close the current window and quit mozilla

Since mozilla takes times to start up, user may not want to quit mozilla so
often. Is it possible to have a confirm window if mozilla wants to quit
completely? Or we can make a option in user preference like below:

action on close last window 
1.confirm quit
2.quit directly
3.no quit

This may save usr a lot of time in restarting the mozilla in case they press the
ctrl-w on the last mozilla window.

Thanks.
we have bug 108973 (add a dialog if you close a window with many open tabs).

and we have bug 52821 and also bug 39057

I would have marked it as dup of bug 108973, but it doesn't really matter.
