Ctrl-Q exit shortcut should ask for confirmation
In NS4 and earlier on UNIX, there is an X resource setting called `confirmExit', which, when set to true, pops up a dialog asking for confirmation when the user presses Alt-Q (now Ctrl-Q in Mozilla). This was very useful, since it often happens that I accidentially hit Ctrl-Q instead of Ctrl-W to close a window. It is very annoying when you have lots of windows open and they all disappear at once. IMHO this should even be the default, but making it a pref would also help. And meybe the confirmation could be omitted if there is only one window open, since there wouldn't be any difference between Ctrl-W and Ctrl-Q in that case.
Confirmed. Marking this as new so someone will look at it.

Ever confirmed: true
afaik, at least on win32 and Mac, when there's more than one communicator window, i'll get a warning when i attempt to quit by either the shortcut or the menu item. i don't seem to get that warning, however, in 4.7x on linux [but perhaps i need to have a hidden pref set?] in any case, i do agree with you: if there's more than one mozilla [or netscape 6] window, we should give a warning to the user.
We should definitely make sure that there is a way to turn this warning off. A pref sounds like the easiest way, since GTK does not really do X resources...
