Firefox aleart already when try to close Firefox anyway with multiple tabs, can you switch to release channel and let us know?
I cannot seem to reproduce this. It displays the warning when I close out of it manually, and when using CTRL-SHIFT-w.
I can't reproduce this either. Eric, is this still happening for you in the current release of Firefox?

Maybe you need to start Firefox in Safe Mode ?
It's still happening for me, on the latest version (23.0.1).

There are several similar open bugs but I am not sure yet if this is a duplicate of an existing bug. There are also some support threads such as this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/960993 that say that the warning doesn't exist for private browsing or for situations where more than one window with multiple tabs is open. 

This may be a solution (or part of the bug): Closing multiple tabs warning may not work correctly when the "Show my windows and tabs from last time" option is selected in the dropdown in the Preferences->General panel.
