Closing window in Firefox

I have always been an IE user but now have to use Mozilla because the company I'm working for online has a program that only works on this browser. One thing I hate about this browser is that if you have several windows open and want to close out one, i.e. the one you are looking at presently. If you go to the top of the screen and try to x out that page, firefox wants to close out everything. You get a pop up window that says "Do you want firefox to save tabs or just close and then it closes out everything and you go back to your desktop. This is a real pain. Am I doing something wrong or is this just the way it is. Its bad enough that I would never use this browser if I didn't have to. Too much hassle. If you know how to get around this please tell me! Thanks in advance J

Download the latest version of Mozilla Firefox from and install it. Then open multiple tabs while browsing the internet. When you want to close a particular tab then just move your cursor to the that tab and close it without getting a message to close all tabs.... enjoy................

I think you're going for close option of the browser---however it should pop-out one message asking you "sure if you want to close all the tabs at once".if you want to close the tab you have been looking at then place your cursor on that tab's corner to find "X" that would close that tab only.great day.
