File->Exit works, but [x] button in toolbar does not close
28.0a1 (2013-12-08)
WFM on FF 29.0a1 2013-12-15, Win XP x86.

Please check if the issue occurs using Firefox in safe mode (with your addons disabled):
http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode

Or on a new, empty profile:

I still see this with a brand new firefox profile.
I also restarted using that profile with add-ons disabled (via Help menu) and in Safe Mode.

No reaction to clicking the fram close button.

I am still running Windows XP SP3.
Try to look after an external app that might interfere with Firefox and cause your trouble.

I have multipe firefox installations on that system, but only firefox nightly *with*
browser.tabs.remote true
ignores the [x] button in the toolstripe.

The other installations are:
firefox 26
firefox aurora
UX nightly

I can only close when I have another tab than the
Nightly Start Page
open, e.g. [New Tab].

Try starting without opening any previous tabs.
You should only have a
Nightly Start Page
tab.

Now try closing with [x].
Does not work for me.
Also, the webconsole for such a tab will not produce any output, e.g. for
> navigator.userAgent

See attached screenshot (in a minute).

Created attachment 8348594 [details]
ffx-nightly-start-page-console-no-output.png

No output in console.
Shift-F2 at this point will crash the fox.
Cannot quit with [x]

You forgot to mention this in the beginning.
I confirm that X button is not functional on Win XP with browser.tabs.remote=TRUE

Please file separate bugs for the console and the crash issues, and add bug 879538 in the blocking field.
