Sometimes, the tabs can no longer close. This starts with already two tabulated. However, I have to add that this behavior is not always. Often enough already a restart of Firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Firefox
2.Open a new tabb or open new site as a new tabb (e.g. a click with 	
Mid mousewheel on a link)
3.Cose the tabb (sometimes it is, sometimes not (see "details"!))
Actual Results:  
Frequently, a restart of the Firefox browser, and can be re-tabulated correctly.

Expected Results:  
The proper closing of one or more tabulated.

I know, but a bug. A bug which should be corrected.

An update to version, and on the version had brought no improvement!

Problem description in German:
Manchmal kann es vorkommen, dass, wenn ich ein neues Fenster öffne, ich keine Tabbs durch einen Klick auf die kleinen Roten Kreuze der Tabbs, schließen kann. Das wird auf Dauer nervig, wenn man bei längerer Internet-Sitzung dutzende Tabbs geöffnet hat und man keine schließen kann. Ich muss dazu jedesmal den Firefox neustarten und darauf hoffen, dass sich die Tabbs schließen lassen. Nur so macht Tabbedbrowsing überhaupt keinen Spaß, dennoch möchte ich nur ungern auf Tabbedbrowsing verzichten wollen. Wie ich schon sagte, dieses Problem tritt nicht immer auf.

In english:
Sometimes it may happen that if I open a new window, I no Tabbs by clicking on the little red crosses the Tabbs, close. This will permanently annoying when you long for Internet session dozens Tabbs has opened and is not close. Every time I have to restart the Firefox and hope that the Tabbs Close. Only then does Tabbedbrowsing no fun, but I want to be reluctant to Tabbedbrowsing want. As I said earlier, this problem does not always.

Es wäre wirklich mal schön, wenn dieses Projekt (Bugzilla) eine mehrsprachige
Oberfläche, sowie eine mehrsprachige Cummunity bekommen könnte. Immerhin geht
es hier ja um die Verbesserung der Mozilla-Produkte.
(In english: It would be really good times, when this project (Bugzilla), a
multilingual interface, and a multilingual Cummunity get it. After all, here is
yes to improve the Mozilla products.)

PS: Where can edit entries posted here?

Note: The problem arises only very rarely with version!

English-Text (Google-machine-translation):
An update to version v2.0.0.13 or v2.0.0.14 seems likely to have brought improvement. Indeed, for some time, this question (bad) behavior no longer.
Nevertheless, I propose that mistake, and called this behavior still problematic in mind.

Original-Text (german):
Ein Update auf die Version v2.0.0.13 bzw. v2.0.0.14 scheint wahrscheinlich Besserung mitgebracht zu haben. Denn seit einiger Zeit tritt das besagte (fehlerhafte) Verhalten nicht mehr auf.
Trotzdem schlage ich vor, diesen Fehler, bzw. dieses genannte problematische Verhalten weiterhin im Auge zu behalten.

Since one years now, this error no longer occurs.
For this reason I mark this bug as resolved.

Probably should be WORKSFORME instead of FIXED, since whatever fixed it hasn't been identified, right?
