Probably. In firefox 3 (windows version), if you have two windows open, close one, and then close the other, only the second window's tabs will appear on the window that's created when you re-open firefox if you have it set to re-open your last group of tabs when you start it. (You can probably re-open the other window via 'history > recently closed windows', but this would be a separate step.)

Ending the firefox process from the task manager will save all sufficiently-recent tabs in all open windows, but is not at all elegant.

I haven't messed with this in firefox 4 yet, but expect that it works similarly.

File -> Exit

File -> Quit, at least on Linux

Looks like File > Exit works. Still, though, having to go to the File menu can work as a minor barrier to impulsiveness.

Also, AD, the saved session feature in Firefox 4 is kind of the opposite of Firefox 3--it asks you if you want to open your last session when you start, instead of asking if you want to save when you quit, in case you were wondering.

Ctrl+Q.

Doesn't seem to work for me.

Alt, F, X. (I apparently value my pedantic satisfaction more than your productivity right now, but you were likely to find out eventually.)

Sheesh, who knew even productivity could be destroyed by the truth?
