Please read first.

This bug is similar to #5949 but it's about closing popup window.

Steps to reproduce:

* Go to and click the "Open popup"
* Click on popup and hit F12 Firebug will appear
* Close popup
* Firebug window stays

What is the expected result?

Firebug window should be also closed

Firebug version (number): 1.10.5
(Note: Bugs in earlier versions than the latest are unlikely to be fixed.)
Browser version: FX 16.0.2
Operating system: Windows 7 sp1 x64

The symptoms are the same. The difference is that here the main window is not closed.
Though I assume fixing this could also fix the problem described in the discussion group.

Btw. the problem mentioned in the discussion group can't be reproduced by me (FF 19.0a1/16.0.1 + FB 1.11a5/1.10.5 on Win7), while this one here is clearly reproducible.

Also when you close the popup window, for which Firebug was opened, and then close the Firebug window, the browser is also closed.

There is another problem that I found i this case. When Firebug window stays open and inactive, it may close whole browser when You try to close it.
