Give me a fix to Firefox, if one exists. I noted the same problem was listed in 2014. I have deleted Firefox from my Mac. Downloaded it again and installed it. The same set of tabs appear. Help!! Using Mac OS Catalina, 10.15.7,

How are you trying to close that tab as it is possible that you closed the window instead ?

Note that on Mac closing Firefox can be more complicated because you can close all open windows, but keep Firefox running with the menu bar visible or minimized in the Doc.

Make sure to use "Quit Firefox" with all windows still open, especially if you want to use "Restore Previous Session". Otherwise check "History -> Restore Previous Session" and "History -> Recently Closed Tabs/Windows".
