Closed Bug 608272 Opened 10 years ago Closed 10 years ago
When solitary tab crashes and is closed the preview remains
This isn't a big deal, but I can reliably crash a tab (bug 608271) and if I choose to close the tab (and it's the only tab open) I see a completely white screen. If I look at my list of tabs, the one that crashed is still there, but clicking on it does nothing. Opening a new tab and then clicking on the old one reloads the old page, which is good functionally, but if the tab is closed, it's weird it's still there.
I bet this is because the tab is the only tab you had open. We have code that ignores closing a tab if it is the last tab so you don't end up with zero tabs. We need to modify that code.

Summary: When tab crashes and is closed the preview remains → When solitary tab crashes and is closed the preview remains
This patch just makes sure we have at least one tab always open, even if we close after a crash.

I can not crash a tab... in order to see what happens if I close it. Can someone please verify this ?
