hello - For the "Close tabs to the right" option. I get this by right clicking on a tab. Can I stop the notification "You are about to close 7 tabs " ?

This notification/warning/alert appears after a certain amount of tabs are being closed. I think its more than 5. I would prefer not receiving any "are you sure" notification when I go to option "close tabs to the right".

Thankyou

With "Close tabs to the right", that notification "You are about to close # tabs" appears when 2 or more tabs are open to the right of the tab that is right-clicked upon.


In about:config the pref named browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs is what controls that message. Double-click that pref to toggle it to false.
