    Close window for current tab only (Firefox 1.0.6)

    Occasionally with multiple windows open in Firefox, I just want to close the current tab's window but I get the massage asking whether I want to close ALL open tabs.

    Is anyone aware of a forthcoming change to Firefox which would add another button to the window, which would say "Close active tab/window only"?

    Thanks!

    John

    PS yes, I know you can do Ctrl+W !

    Hi John

    Easy Gestures download (description) is an extension that I find really useful and should solve your problem.
    These other extensions should also help with your tabbed browsing.
    Tab Mix
    Tab X
    Tabbrowser Extensions
    Tabbrowser Preferences

    Note that some people have problems with Tabbrowser Extensions, but I have all of these installed, allow automatic updates, and have no apparent problems.

    Have a Great day!!!

    The tabbed options in Firefox 1.5 as shown in the screenshot, are almost the same as those in Firefox 1.0.6

    In addition to the tabbed extensions mentioned by Ken, there is also Tab Mix Plus which is the one I use.
