Closing Multiple Tabs Prompt

In my preferences, I have the option to "Warn you when closing multiple tabs" disabled. However, this preference does not seem to be respected in all scenarios that I think it should. When using the context menu to "Close tabs to the right" or "Close other Tabs" I still get prompted that I am closing multiple tabs.

Hi dradidcal,

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar about:config (press Enter) (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar browser.tabs.warn

and look for the preference :

browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs

and set its value to false

Then close and restart Firefox.

Now that you have the values of both prefs set to 'false', you shouldn't see that warning again.
