The only way to see the gmail page again is to refresh. This has only happened to gmail. This hasn't happened in firefox 2. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log onto gmail and go to the inbox screen (or any other part of gmail) 2. Have a few more tabs open besides gmail. 3. Try to close the firefox window 4. The window that warns you about closing multiple tabs comes up. 5. Click no and look at the gmail tab. It will appear completely blank and white. Actual Results: Gmail page no longer appears. Expected Results: Just kept the gmail screen without any errors. I'm using the default theme on firefox 3 beta 4. The extensions I have installed are: Adblock plus, download helper, Flagfox, and PDF download.
Summary: Gmail screen turns blank if you try to close the firefox window while it has multiple tabs → Gmail screen turns blank if you try to close the firefox (Firefox 3 beta 4) window while it has multiple tabs

I can verify this using on XP and OSX. It returns with a simple refresh of the page. It happens whether or not the tab is selected,
I can also confirm this not happening in Firefox2.
Confirmed reproducible in Firefox 3r4 in XP-SP2. Confirmed not happening in Firefox 2.
Also reproducible on my Ubuntu box in 3.0b4 , but doesn't occur in Firefox 2.
This bug is still present in Firefox 3 Beta 5 for Windows XP. I don't know if this is the same for other operating systems.
