If my download window is open (or even if another browser window is open) , and I click on the close button, it warns me about closing multiple tabs, rather than asking if I want to save the tabs. If I quit anyway, the tabs are lost.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox, go to Options, go to "When Firefox starts:" and select "Open tabs and windows from last session"
2. Open multiple tabs on the Firefox window.
3. Make a new window, and open multiple tabs on that too.
4. Attempt to close one of the windows.
Actual Results:  
I get warned about closing multiple tabs, and if I proceed to close the window, all tabs are lost.

Expected Results:  
It should have quit without questioning the multiple tabs, and when opened again, it should have brought back up the tabs I had open at the time.
It's normal. You must quit Firefox if you want to save the session. If you want to close a window, you can't save session. Next time simply select File -> Exit.
