Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

See STR

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any website that has an unload JavaScript handler that allows the user to cancel the closing of that website.
2. Install a plugin.
3. Click "Restart Firefox". The message pops up asking for confirmation that the website should be unloaded
4. Click "Cancel"
5. Continue your business for as long as you like
6. At the end of the day, close Firefox
Actual Results:  
Firefox restarts.

Expected Results:  
Firefox closes.

The "Add-ons" dialog disappears after you click "Restart" even if the restart is cancelled in this way. It might make sense for that dialog to remain open so that the user has a chance to click "Restart" again if they so wish.

Correction: Instead of "Install a plugin", I meant "Install an add-on".
