    Close Firefox without prompt (Firefox 0.8)

    I just screwed up & can't find the option to change back. If I have more than 1 tab open & press Alt+F4 or click the upper right X, I used to get a prompt as to whether to close or not. I didn't want the prompt, so I checked the box to never show it again. However, instead of closing the application without a prompt, I now can't shut down unless I close all tabs except one. How can I get the dialog box back (or better yet, have Firefox close completely without any prompts)?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Phil,

    Not sure if this is what you are hunting for but here goes! Under the Tab in the menu, I have a selection called TabBrowser Extensions Preferences. When selected, it shows many choices. Select "Advanced", then at the top of the dialog box there is a "general" place to change some settings. The second sentence reads: "When several tabs are in a closing window" - and then a dialog box has a choice in it. LClick on that box and it will give you a total of three choices one of which says "Confirm to close Window" - select that one and hit apply and close. Now try and close the broswer with more then one tab and it should give you the dialog box below!

    Hope this helps! If not, what you are looking for has to be in this area someplace - in my estimation that is!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> But I will be happy to help you hunt!! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    Hi Phil,

    It took me a while to find this option as well. Since that little window doesn't have a "down arrow" to indicate selections, I missed it the first time through!! I am glad to help and that this was what you were "hunting" for!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
