Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Right click to the right of open tabs 2.Choose "Close Tab" 3. Actual Results: All of the tabs are closed, and only one tab remains. Expected Results: Since no tab was selected (to the right of the tabs is whitespace), the menu should not have the choice to "Close Tab"
Confirmed using FizzillaMach/2003032609. The Tab Bar contextual menu should not show "Close Tab," "Close Other Tabs" (this could be "Close All Tabs" in this context), or "Reload Tabs."
Why would you want to turn such a useful option off? other browsers (such as Safari) waste precious screen real estate with close-button widgets on *each* tab. Mozilla, on the other hand, provides the same functionality through the context menu. In my opinion, this is exactly what makes Mozilla's tab implementation so much better, especially in operating systems where the user can right-hold (not right-click) a tab -> choose "Close Tab" -> release the right mouse button to close the tab. Let's keep things the way they are (quick and logical). Prog.
email@example.com, this bug is about the Tab *Bar's* contextual menu, not individual tabs.
Oops... now that I read the summary again, I see what you mean. Well, in that case, I can confirm that I see this bug on WinXP/20030312, so it would probably be safe to mark it for all platforms and all operating systems. Prog.
Marking All/All per comment 4.
Yes, clicking 'close tab' should not close *multiple* tabs! This bug seems to be fixed; can't reproduce in 1.4 on XP: Steps to Reproduce: 1.Right click to the right of 3 open tabs 2.Choose "Close Tab" Actual Results: Just the currently displayed tab is closed, and other 2 remain. (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624) Note: Also works fine on X and * parts of tab bar.

(In reply to comment #6) > This bug seems to be fixed; can't reproduce in 1.4 on XP: Also in SM2. Close Tab from Tab Bars context menu acts now the same as the Close Tab button on the far right.
This is easily reproduced, and I think that the original reporter was misunderstood. Please read the initial comments again. The problem is that the Close Tab options appear not if you click on a tab - but if you click on an empty portion of the tab bar itself - to the right of any existing tab. You aren't clicking on any tab at all, just the tab bar, but the context menu still shows the options. Which he doesn't want to see. He ONLY wants the options to appear if he clicks on an existing tab.
Oops! I misunderstood too. He was complaining not just about the empty tab bar space, but also the fact that Close Tab closed all tabs, not just the current one. I guess that's sufficient. Comment 1 and comment 3 are actually talking about something else (which led to my confusion). I'm going to re-resolve. Greg - if you want to have no context menus at all (for any type of close) on the empty tab bar you're going to have to file a separate bug.
(In reply to comment #12) > Greg - if you want to have no context menus at all (for any type of close) > on the empty tab bar you're going to have to file a separate bug. We can simply reopen bug 281772 (for SeaMonkey) and/or bug 289270 (for Firefox) in this case. They aren't duplicates if this bug is about closing all tabs.
