Firefox always asking if I want to save tabs- Mint12

Firefox always asking if I want to save tabs

Hey people, I have a problem with Firefox that only happens in MInt 12. I'm wondering if this could be a bug. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post... If not, I'm sorry.

The Firefox is out of the box (from the Mint 12 installation) and is the indicated version.

Evertime I close the browser, it asks me if I want to save the open tabs (what I don't) and even by checking *don't ask anymore*, it keeps asking me everytime if I want to save them.

Any one of you had similar problem? How did you solve it?

Thanks in advance

Try going to FF's control settings.

Click Edit, select Preferences> then tabs> Then uncheck the box for "warn me when closing multiple tabs".

but I still get prompted

Sigh x 2

Was so focused on that one item didn't even see that...
Manually changed in about:config and now it is happy and so I am.

Still odd behaviour but thanks for smacking some sense into me
