View Full Version : How to get back "Quit\Close Tabs" warning in Firefox 5?

I accidentally unchecked the "Ask me every time" on the close tabs\quit warning dialog that pops up when one is closing the last Firefox window.

I've trawled through everything including "about:config" but now I can't find anything anywhere on how to get it back.

Does anyone know?

Try opening in "safe mode" That's FF safe, not windows.
Start - progs etc

Go to Tools>Options>Tabs(tab).
If menu bar is not showing, press Alt key.
(Sorry, don't have FF5, dont know if above applies :)).

That's what I thought but "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" is already checked

about:config
browser.tabs.warnOnClose;false
Change false to true

Well that's what I thought would be it but it makes no sense since that's already set to true.

Just tried toggling it (twice) - quitting between both tries - made no difference

If I set it to true on mine & then try to close firefox with more than one tab open, it brings up the warning

I just had to re-install FF5 on my sons laptop. He had Bearshare on it. What a nightmare to get rid of all the rubbish it leaves here there & everywhere. We use Xmarks for the bookmarks, makes it easy. All good now

I just reinstalled mine too. And deleted the profile (due to some other funny stuff as well)

All working now, hope it stays that way. Might be some kind of Ubuntu 11.04 bug - haven't had anything weird with Firefox 5 on Windows so far...

about:config
browser.tabs.warnOnClose;false
Change false to true

After some research I think the option I was looking for was "browser.showQuitWarning" - but I think the reinstall did it good anyway :p

That asks you if you want to save the tabs & re-open them next time FF opens. I'd forgotten it does that. It's normally the first nag I get rid of ;)
