Tab groups extension interferes with browser.showQuitWarning

Unread postby snertev » Wed, 10 Oct 2018, 07:47

I've just discovered that the Tab groups extension (Panorama, ver 0.4) doesn't let the Quit Warning dialog window appear, if enabled via about:config option (browser.showQuitWarning = true).

If I disable the extension, the Quit Warning dialog works as expected when closing Pale Moon.

Can you confirm this behavior?

I'm using Pale Moon 28.1.0 (32 bit) on Win 10 Home 64 bit.

TIA.

Tab Groups is designed to be used with the setting "restore windows and tabs from last time" -- without that, there are no tabs to keep track of.
That setting won't show a quit warning, because the session will be restored on next startup.

Then, I'm a bit puzzled.

I've set PM to start with a home page, "about:blank", we have discussed about that some days ago because of a misunderstanding of mine in the meaning of "blank page" in my native language GUI.

Currently, once Tab groups is installed and active, I don't have the quit warning nor the previous tab session is reloaded, but the about:config browser.showQuitWarning is still set to "true".

I find it bizarre.
