Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Firefox 72.0.2 64-bit

When I close more than one tab (or more than two or three - I don't count), the warning box about closing multiple tabs appears. I haven't found what to mouse-click to dismiss the box with no effect. What is the magic click that will keep Firefox from closing all but one of my tabs?

Setting browser.tabs.warnOnClose False and setting browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs False have no effect.

EDIT - Never mind. I misread your question. I don't have the answer.
Do, or do not. There is no try.

Should be .............
browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab --- False ..... If I Clear last tab it Won't let FF Close and defaults to my FF Home (default) New tab setup in Home/Home/New Tabs, where I have 80 Top Sites as Default.

Is you also set, browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs to 'false' ?

Setting --- browser.tabs.warnOnClose False --- and setting --- browser.tabs.warnOnCloseOtherTabs False --- have no effect.

Both of my ... Warn on Close (Tabs & Other tabs) are True --- yet I don't get a Warning when using - Close Tabs to Right - OR Close FF entirely.
He started with Closing Multi-Tabs Warnings and ended with -- How to Keep One Tab Open --, which my first post does for me.
