Thanks for all the work on this browser!!

Once in a while I fat-finger command-W and get command-Q, which immediately closes the whole browser. I notice that if you manually click the red X there's a "confirm close" window that warns about closing multiple tabs. Is there a simple way to enable this confirmation for command-Q?

    Hi Jason, try setting "browser.showQuitWarning" to true in about:config. This only works if you have more than one open tab, just like the "close window" warning (or more than one open window).
