User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1 I had around 10 tabs open and in Tools > Options > Advanced > Browsing I had ticked 'Warn when closing multiple tabs'. On one of may tabs I had composed a long blog post which I was about to submit. Suddenly by accident I pressed Ctrl-Shift-W instead of Shift-W and to my shock and horror the entire window closed without any sort of confirmation and as a result I lost all my work! This is not an enhancement request. It is a serious problem that misleads the user. Please give it due attention. Many thanks. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Turn on 'Warn when closing multiple tabs' option. 2. Open lots of tabs in a window. 3. Type a long passage in a web form for about an hour. 4. Press Ctrl-Shift-W accidentally instead of Shift-W. 5. Watch your work disappear into a black hole. Actual Results: Firefox quit without confirmation. Expected Results: It should provide confirmation.
The funny thing is I was actually writing about Mozilla Firefox 1.0 PR when this happened.
