Warning exit dialog when having multiple tabs

  • A simple dialog that appears everytime you are going to close Opera when having multiple tabs.
    The lacking of this feature is desperating, why developers deleted this feature? It's maddening when I accidentally hit the "X" and lose uncompleted downloads, unsaved text in forums, blogs, etc., buffered videos, and having to open and reload the many (21) tabs I had.

  • If you add such a feature, then you must make sure the user can choose if he/she want it on, because i definitely don't want this feature! (While I of course can understand why others want it, but I think it would be annoying).

  • Yeah, the feature would be totally optional, so by default it'd be desactivated so it will not put in your way if you don't want it. The thing is, I don't get why you can't see the pure essential of this simply feature; if you have time, I invite you to open 30+ tabs, begin various downloads with large size depending of your speed, write a big status on facebook, or upload a big file. Then, in the middle of these stuff, hit the "X" button and close Opera, then you might think "well, I don't get his point, I closed it because I wanted", well that might be true, but the thing is that if you didn't actually wanted to close Opera, and you hit the "X" button accidentaly you lose irrecoverable stuff like those I listed before. How this can happen? I wanted to "restore down" or "resize", oops "x" button, Computer got slow, hit "x" of a crashed software many times, one goes for the software and other for Opera, Opera closed. And other cases.

  • if this feature is as necessary as users think, this feature must have a option that control the confirm exit dialog is only appear when numbers of tabs is more X tabs, that wont force all users to use this feature.

  • This feature is necessary :) and for me it is not related to tabs count in any way. I like old Opera approach - simple (optional) exit dialog with 20 sec shutdown.

  • Tankietoopera1907, Yeah for sure, I think it'd be more convenient a switch to turn this feature on/off, so if it's on and there are more than 2 tabs, it should warn you that you are trying to close Opera.

  • Its bad feature dont add this please!

  • I'm not а specialist, but maybe there is an opportunity to create an appropriate Opera extension, which would track a try to exit and pop up a dialog window to confirm?

  • I can’t imagine that there is any need to discuss such an INDISPENSABLE feature (as an option of course).

    Opera has discontinued a wonderful browser and mail client for something brand new, but after more than 2 years we still don’t have a decent replacement (besides bells and whistles for the kids I mean, this of course being on top of the list of requirements in today’s world). Firefox is a crashing machine and I don’t like Chrome, but in Opera 31 I did not even manage to make TabHamster automatically save my open session.

    Typing ALT+F4 with the wrong window selected is something many people may well do when in a rush or tired. When you rely on a wireless broadband connection, you can’t accept wasting your data allowance due to the huge lack of essential functionality in your browser.

  • It could be bundled with a good session manager.

    Like a session manager add-on listed in the browser's options to check/uncheck - depending on whether you need it or not.
    If enabled, it could produce a dialogue (upon hitting "close" or something) with options as follows:

    • close and save session -
    • close -
    • cancel :)
  • It is a MUST HAVE feature. Not only with multiple tabs, but woth a single tab too.
    Of course, it has to have a switch in the settings.

    It is a simple feature to implement, so everyone +1 this thread please!

  • Yes, this was in the old Opera browser too before they went to Chromium. I need this since I get click stupid sometimes and miss the minimize button.

  • Please Add this feature. Like so many others I lose everything when I accidentally hit the close button. Seems like it shouldn't be so hard to add this and make many users happy. Thank you!

  • Why would people ask NOT to add such an important feature. Put it in the options so people can choose. The lack of this feature is why I will not move to Opera as my main browser,the rest of it I love. But I use tabs all the time and when I go to close the window I can accidentally close 10 tabs and then it is too late. OPERA PLEASE add this as an option, to warn before closing multiple tabs. I have been reading many forums and this is a big complaint. I will make Opera my default browser when this is added but not until.

  • Just did it to me, if the developer were in front of me I would give him a bitch slap!

    Seriously, which bright spark thought this would be a good idea when every other windows prgram since 1983 asks you to confirm you want to exit.

    I am trialling Opera at the moment, this is a show stopper

    A friend of mine in LA says "F'ing useless piece of Sh1t" when he gets frustrated with software, it applies here.

    FIX IT

  • FIX IT

    It's not a bug so there is nothing to be fixed. Even if it was, you couldn't come here and shout demanding a fix for it.

    This forum is to politely ask for features, options, etc. No demands are allowed here.

  • Of course it's a bug, it's a missing obvious feature every other browser has.

  • Of course it's a bug, it's a missing

    It's not a bug. Missing features are not bugs.

  • i would also like this feature added as well as restore previous session

  • This is absolutely missing. Just lost ~30 tabs because I had 2 windows and accidentally closed the wrong one first. This or a session manager.
    Really, I need a session manager. Bookmarks just aren't dynamic enough for active projects!
