Do you want to quit?

If you accidentally click to close your Dominion tab in Firefox (25.0.1 on Ubuntu), you get a dialogue like this.



Suppose you aren't a jerk, and want to actually finish playing the game.  What do you press?

Trick question!  OK, Cancel and X all quit the game.

This seems to work correctly in Chrome, so it seems I can't just blame Goko.  Has anyone else had this problem?  If so, have you found a way round it?

(Apologies to dawn_harbor, who was on the receiving end of a quit earlier today.)

It's happened to me too. You'll also see this dialogue in Firefox if you press the back button, in which case the cancel actually prevents you from leaving the page so that you can keep playing.

It's happened to me too.  I just assumed Goko was incompetent.  Usually it only happens after the game, though, when it no longer matters.

That's when I've come across it before, when I deliberately close the tab and it asks me to confirm.  Usually I'm sufficiently with it to not close the tab I'm playing a game in until it's finished.

The image in the OP is confusing me every time I check this thread.

This seems to work correctly in Chrome, so it seems I can't just blame Goko. 

different browsers handle client-side scripting differently (which is really too bad).  however, the script can tell what browser you're using and produce correct behavior if programmed properly.  emphasis on if.
