In that case when you will like to close your browser you will have to click the red cross button on the top right hand corner. When you will press this button you will get a pop up which will notify you by saying that you are about to close all the tabs that you have opened in your browser. And also it will ask your permission to perform the same task to close all the tabs. But you will not get this notification when you will only have only one tab opened in your browser.

And then press OK and now you are good to go the pop up option that you were getting in the first place will again come when you will close the browser having multiple tabs opened.

You can also consider installing this extension called Close Multiple Tabs or Multiple Tab Handler – both of these extensions could be really useful for handling multiple tabs. In case you would like to close all the tabs but like to save them while closing you should install Session Manager or email  the links to all the web pages opened then use the extension Send Tab URLs
