I continue to get a warning when attempting to close multiple tabs at once. The checkbox in the settings for the warning is unselected, and the relevant about:config is set to false, but it still displays.

You probably see the consequence of this bug fix.
- bug 277079 - "Close other tabs" should always warn about closing multiple tabs
Well, that's extremely irritating. Looks like I'm forced to downgrade my Firefox version to avoid the consequences of this "feature". Why anyone would think that forcing the warning when you can only turn it off with a checkbox is completely beyond me.
Firefox 17 (currently in beta) will have a browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs pref to disable this alert.
- bug 772319 - No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt
Still an issue in Firefox 19.0.
I do not want to be warned when I use the "Close Other Tabs" feature. And forcing users to modify the "about:config" page for such a simple option looks like a bad idea. "about:config" is an Admin tool, isn't it?
Firefox is great, but this issue is so annoying that it made me register here, for the first time ever.
Please make the "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" option do what it is supposed to do.
