Closing a tab button [X]

Post by flowrush » Mon Sep 20, 2010 9:59 pm

I noticed in the latest Avant (2010.b122), though I'm not sure since when this started, when I go to close a tab via the close button on that specific tab, it automatically closes the tab in one click, without waiting for me to depress/release the click. This is an issue that has made me accidentally close tabs somewhat often. It is not something that occurs in any other browser, other browsers require you to depress the mouse click before the window/tab is closed, and it used to be this way in Avant as well but at some point it has changed. And without any kind of tab recovery feature like FF has (where you can recover a tab you recently closed), I may not even have realized what tab I did accidentally close with so many in use.

Hopefully this can be fixed for the better.

You can re-open a closed tab by selecting the following from the menu:

File
Open Recent
Undo Close (to reopen the just-closed tab) OR select another recently-closed tab URL from the list

or use the keystroke
[Shift][Ctrl]Z

Ah, well that's good to know, though I still believe this should be fixed.
