I'd like to see the installation of a Prefernece option for users who would want to have a safty net "Do you want to close Chimera?" message if cmd-q is hit. And for those users who don't want to see the message then they don't have to have the preference selected. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: hit command-q Actual Results: Chimera quits without a message closing many windows that I didn't want to close yet. Expected Results: I'd like to see Chimera ask me "Do I want to quit?" message.
I don't think it would be a setting in the Preferences, but if this were to be implemented it would be done as an "Are you sure you want to quit" dialog with an optional "Don't show this dialog again" checkbox.
Great idea very user friendly.

Ever confirmed: true
Summary: The installation of a Preference option to allow a user to have a "Do you want to quit?" Option → Add pref to confirm quiting.
The preference should be "Confirm Quit always/Confirm Quit when more than one window is open/Confirm Quit never". iCAB has this. The multiple tab case is already handled.
Re comment 1: It's generally bad UI to have an option like "don't ask again" without a corresponding pref. What if I change my mind later and *do* want to be asked? Re comment 3: How is the multiple-tabs-in-one-window already handled? In general though, I'm against this pref. If the underlying problem is the loss of browser state, I'd rather we have an optional save-state-on-quit-and-restore-on-load, which I belive there's another RFE for. That, to me, is a more elegant solution to the same underlying problem, and also a useful feature on top of that (Camino upgrades, restarts/shut-downs, etc).
In answer to Stuart's second point in comment 4, thats the enhancement request in bug 196359. These aren't quite dupes, but closely related.
I'm marking this bug as a duplicated as this bug is now a duplicated bug 196359. I will adjust the later to reflect these changes. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 196359 ***
