I realize this is probably of very little importance, and indeed doesnt bother me much, especially considering the happy times I have with Thunderbird and Firefox compared to Mcrosft prgs! Just thot i wud mention it, as i couldnt find any prev ref's to it.. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.open two or more tabs in one window 2.try to close the FF window from XP toolbar 3.Witness the two/several close tabs warnings Actual Results: It was simply a case of clicking cancel on each "close multi tab" warning, no big deal Expected Results: Opened one "close multi-tab" warning and accepted result of first imput.
When there are more windows open with multiple tabs in each window I think it is the right behaviour to show also multiple warnings. One could always disable the messages in about:config. In this case set browser.tabs.warnOnClose to false.
