I am running SM 2.49.3 under Win7/Pro x64.
When I hover over the SM icon on my Quick Launch bar and place the cursor on one of the icon for an open window there is a red 'x' at the far right. If I click on it, the url is cleared from the open window and a blank window is left open. Is this an intentional feature? If so, is there a similarly simple way to completely close that window from the Quick Launch bar?
Thanks

Thanks for the reply.
Unfortunately it does not address my question.
I have a SeaMonkey icon on my Quick Launch bar. If I hover on it, a list drops down. If I hover on an entry there is an X to the right. If I click on it the URL is cleared but the window remains open. If the X in the 'blank' entry is clicked everything remains the same.
I'm asking if there is a simple way to close the window from the Quick Launch bar.

This was my first attempt at including an image. I copied the HTML for the 'Gallery' at imgbox.com. Here's a try at the 'Images.'

That's not Quick Launch bar. By default QL under Win7 is disabled:

To use it you must add it first:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... -windows-7

What you see is Taskbar with pinned applications. SeaMonkey must be pinned because it didn't disappeared when you click close button.

What is "pin" (2nd definition):

It is long standing bug, with no fix available iirc

Thank you, PX, for the clarifying comment.

I stand corrected. I'm clearly not alone in calling the "Quick Launch Toolbar" the "Quick Launch Bar." Semantics are important.

That said, the 'red X' in the dropdown is pretty useless if you must navigate to the page to close it with the X in the upper right.

Perhaps I'm missing the point; perhaps there are occasions where access to a totally unassigned browser window is useful but none come to mind as I write.

thanks
