Attached image Screenshot of issue
Seen while running Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b4pre) Gecko/20100813 Minefield/4.0b4pre. Sorry if this is a dupe but I could not find an existing but that describes this exact behavior.

1. Create two distinct groups in tab candy. One group has one tab, the other has 4 tabs.
2. Change focus back the single normal tab, and press the "X" button

Expected: I would get a dialog asking if I want to close this tab.
Actual: I get a dialog asking if I want to close 5 tabs

The same thing happens if I switch back to the group with four tabs. It want me to close the other window with one tab in it as well.

See attached screenshot.
I agree the text in this dialog could be confusing. Assigning to Aza for his ux/design opinion.

I'm confused, this is for closing a window with tabs hidden in panorama and having the dialog not mention that some of the tabs are hidden?

Since this is a Mac bug, I would suggest, in the situation described, that panorama is brought up, without any dialog box coming up.

In Mac the closing of the window doesn't translate in the closing of the application. Then, if you click the panorama window, well, it can continue to do what does now, i.e. not close the program, and in the situation being described, it would bring you back to the last remaining window, the one with 4 tabs in the example.
