    Has anyone else noticed that Firefox changed the behavior of the option to warn when closing multiple tabs? This is one of the things that I liked so much better than Safari; FF2 would warn me if I tried to close a window that had multiple tabs OR if I tried to quit FF (command-Q). Now FF3 does the same thing in the first case, but it gladly quits without a warning. Is there any way to get back the old behavior? I hate accidentally shutting down the browser.

    Yeah, it's a PITA to accidentally shut Fx down when you've got a load of tabs open.

    Enable Session Manager in Preferences, or download Tab Mix Plus extension.

    That way, when you restart Fx, all the previous tabs will open up, right where you left them.

    Workaround? Sure, but it DOES work.
