FF3.1 (Minefield): Closing last tab always quits browser?

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Andreas Eibach, Nov 24, 2008.

  1. Greetings,

    whenever I close the last tab in the browser, it auto-quits. This is
    extremely annoying.
    I just like to have things clean, close ALL tabs then probably start surfing
    to other locations.

    I cannot seem to remember this was normal in FF3.0.

  5. Found it:
    about_config :
    must set browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab to FALSE.
