Since a few days I noticed that sometimes iceweasel closes 2 tabs where it would normally just close 1, when clicking the X close tab button. If there are only 2 tabs open, it will close the browser. It isn't 100% reproducable but it happens often enough. It is semi-reproducable by doing this:
- run a single instance of iceweasel
- load some page
- open a second tab and load another page in it
- close the first tab
- result: browser closes

I'm not sure if this is a bug or that I unknowingly messed up a setting, but I dont recall messing with settings. Is anyone else seeing this?

I've not seen that happen, although I'm still on version 24.4.0 as I've not DU'ed for a week or so.

But I just thought I should share this tip in case it helps: you can restore previously closed tabs (one at a time, in order) by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+T.

What happens if you press CTRL+W to close a tab instead of clicking the X? And just to rule out mechanical failure: are you sure your mouse button isn't sticking and activating twice?

Forgive me if you know all this! Smile

The most likely reason is your left mouse button wearing out and producing double clicks when you only intended to click once; happens far too often.

I didn't know those short-cuts, spock. Especially CTRL+SHIFT+T is nice to know.
The mouse didn't occur to me. I'll switch to another mouse for a while and see if the problem disappears.
Thanks.
