Chosen solution

in Firefox type about:config in the Location (address) bar where you would normally type say www.example.com

In the Filter box on top type in browser.tabs. and in that list should be a Preference with name of browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab

Double-left-click or right-click and Toggle this Preference to have value of false.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries#Browser. browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab Boolean (Firefox 3.5 and above) This preference controls whether closing the last tab, closes the window. True: Close window when closing last tab (default) False: Do not close the window when closing last tab (pre Firefox 3.5 behavior) Note: Changing to False prevents Firefox from closing the window when you close the last tab such as with Ctrl+W, and subsequently from closing Firefox itself when closing the last tab of the last Firefox window.
