Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:21.0) Gecko/20130110 Firefox/21.0
Build ID: 20130110030939

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox and open one tab
2. Open the toolbox and undock
3. Close Firefox by clicking on the 'X' button.

Expected results:
The undocked developer tools window is closed along with the browser.

Actual results:
The developer tools window remains open after closing Firefox from the 'X' button. If Firefox is dismissed from the File menu -> Exit, the developer tools window is also closed.

Doesn't the same thing happen with other windows, like the Error Console?

Apparently, this doesn't work if the last tab is closed with ctrl-w. Followup: bug 829553.
