I quit multiple tabs Firefox sent the warning prompt. As I was going to click save and quit I accidentally pressed the "save these settings". Now I jsut wonder, how do I turn it off, so that Fireox sends the prompt whenever I try to close multiple tabs?

This might sound stupid, but once when I was about to quit Firefox, I got the warning prompt if I wanted to close multiple tabs.. As I was going to click save and quit I accidentally pressed the "save these settings". Now I jsut wonder, how do I turn it off, so that Fireox sends the prompt whenever I try to close multiple tabs? I'm running 3.6.6 with OS X Snow Leopard.

You can reset the warn prefs on the about:config page via the right-click context menu. browser.tabs.warnOnClose , see http://kb.mozillazine.org/About%3Aconfig_entries browser.warnOnQuit , see http://kb.mozillazine.org/browser.warnOnQuit browser.warnOnRestart , see http://kb.mozillazine.org/browser.warnOnRestart

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the Enter key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website. If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.


In Firefox 3 you do not get the "Save & Quit" pop-up dialog if you choose Firefox > Preferences > General > Startup: "When Firefox Starts": "Show my windows and tabs from last time". To get the "Save & Quit" pop-up dialog you have to select one of the other choices (Show my home page,Show a blank page).
