Description vsync 2008-02-26 13:12:03 PST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080113 Firefox/
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080113 Firefox/

Firefox slows down more and more over time.  Eventually it takes 5 or 10 sec to register a mouse click.  Finally I go to quit it, and then it takes hours as it cycles through every single window asking if I really want to close this one and that one.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open several windows.
2. Open several tabs in each window.
3. File->Quit.
Actual Results:  
Irritating multiple confirm quit dialogs.

Expected Results:  
Maybe ask once if I really want to quit, then quit.

If you want to get really clever you could display in the quit window a tree of open windows and tabs.

with V3 I believe it now asks once
Comment 2 vsync 2010-12-26 01:08:57 PST
Now in v4 beta it doesn't ask at all

Considering this bug doesn't seem to affect the latest builds of Firefox(changeset:   62447:704dd93dad14) this bug should be marked "INVALID" or "FIXED".
