Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147262
Doesn't quit as expected when clicking on File/Quit if windows with multiple tabs are open
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:36:43 EDT
Description of problem:
When having windows open with more than one tab and if "Warn when closing
multiple tabs" is selected, Firefox doesn't react visibly on clicking File/Quit
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Warn when closing multiple tabs"
2. Open multiple tabs in some windows, hide/iconify at least on of these
3. Click File/Quit or press Alt-F/Q
No visible reaction
Firefox asks the user something along this: "You have windows with multiple tabs
open, do you really want to quit?" and quits. Or brings all windows with
multiple tabs open to the foreground as well as the dialog asking whether I'm
sure to close all these tabs. Certainly not having these dialogs iconified along
with the respective window ;-).
metacity-2.8.6-2 is the window manager.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Still the case with FC5, when doing that you have to actively search for the
small dialog boxes asking you whether you really want to close that windows
(which sometimes hide behind the windows in question). Better would be one
dialog box "you have N windows with M tabs open, do you really want to quit?".
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
Still the case on F7:
Since this bugzilla report was filed, we have seriously upgraded Gecko-related
packages, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this
problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their
Please, confirm to us that this bug is reproducible on the latest upgrade of the
supported distribution (that's RHEL, or Fedora 7, 8, and Rawhide).
Setting the bug to NEEDINFO. If I won't get confirmation of reproducability in
30 days, the bug will be closed as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
[This is mass-changing of bugs which seem to be too old and irrelevant anymore;
we are sorry, if this bug should not be incldued.]
Just the same with:
Please, report the content of the settings in about:config for these two keys:
Did hitting [x] icon on the corner of the window work?

Of course it works, since the window to be closed is always in the foreground,
so the confirmation dialog box is also visible ;-).
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=412640) and believe that it is
more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
