Hi

I have added the "Close All Tabs" ICON to my toolbar. (please see screenshot). I did this as I could not find a way to add "Close all Tabs to right, as a right click action". No worries, I like this ICON very much, maybe more as I am tired of right clicking all the time.


There is one 1 thing I wish to change before its perfect.


When I click on "Close All Tabs" ICON, fx,

1) correctly closes all my unpinned tabs. I like this

2) But then it adds a new tab. I dont want this -- How do I stop fx doing this step?

I always have 3-4 pinned tabs, so there is always at least 1 tab in existence.

Thankyou for your help.

You can't close all normal tabs and only leave pinned tabs. Firefox will always create one normal tab automatically on the next start if you close all normal tabs before closing Firefox.

What is the address of the unwanted tab? What add-on are you using? Have you asked it's support?

hello - 1) appears to be no address when i click in the URL bar. Does show About>Blank when i click off 2) I do not believe I am using any add-on. I found the Close All Tabs icon, when I clicked "customize" icon at the top right. Thankyou

fyi - the new tab, does created after i click "close all tab" icons, does not have the rectangles i have on my normal new tab page (e.g. the new tab shown on opening firefox). Not a biggy, and fyi.
