Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (masking-agent; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713134347

Steps to reproduce:

Close a singular tab using the Command+W shortcut on MAC OS X 10.7.4 using the new 14.0.1 firefox.


Actual results:

Upon pressing command+w, the whole window closes. Whats more irritating, upon reopening a firefox window, I cannot restore session. Presumably because I never physically closed firefox and only closed the window. However upon reopening and testing the command+w, it seems to work for a short period of time, closing singular tabs. Tabs/hours later, habit of me presses command+w to close the tab and find my frustrating go through the roof due to the me losing all my tabs. This has only started happening since the 14 branch update.


Expected results:

Upon pressing command+W, the current; target singular tab should have closed, leaving me with all the other opened tabs I had.

Does this also happen when Firefox is in safe-mode?

To do this:
Open Terminal and type in /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -safe-mode

This happens to me on multiple MACs.  It has gotten way worse under 23.0.1.
