Firefox 17.0 doesn't warn me when closing multiple tabs any more

hi all

Having updated to Firefox 17.0 (from 16.0.2), for some reason I don't get warned when closing multiple tabs any more.

I've confirmed the relevant options are selected and am 100% certain this was working fine before updating Firefox today.

I've replicated the problem on my vista 32bit platform and on XP 32 bit too.

I also looked at the changelog for Firefox 17 but can't see any explanation for this change in behaviour, although I wonder whether this might have something to do with it "772319 No option to disable the "Close other tabs" prompt."

As I use Tab Mix Plus (add-on), I've also checked Firefox in safemode and have found the native tab warnings not working, so have concluded it's an issue with Firefox (rather than something to do with an extension).

I've checked "about:config" and "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" is set to true, as is "browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs".

Any help would be appreciated.

What is the startup setting?

  • Tools > Options > General > Startup: When Firefox Starts:

If you use 'Show my windows and tabs from last time" then your session should be restored automatically and in this case Firefox doesn't ask for confirmation.
You will have to select one of the other two (Show my home page or Show a blank page).
