closing Safari by Tab

I noticed when I open Safari and then open other windows(new tabs), then later when I  close Safari, it does not prompt to close just the current Tab or all windows.

How can I configure Safari to prompt me about which windows to close?

Thanks

here you are, see the highlighted option under History.

when the Safari window is active, press Command + "," to  open Safari's Preferences, under "Tabs", check "Confirm before closing multiple tabs or windows".

it seems Apple has changed the setting since Snow Leopard. my Safari 5.1.10 running on Snow Leopard got these settings under Tabs in Preferences.

Safari Preferences - Tabs
are you running Mavericks? try finding the same setting somewhere under Preferences tabs?

anyway i will check my Mac running Mavericks to see the difference.

You are running Mountain Lion and your Safari is version 6.x.

Try this.

How do I have Safari 6 ask before quitting (to avoid accidental quits)?

Sorry, just tried the command lines on my Mountain Lion and they did not work. :-(

However at least the following work around works, you may get the closed tabs back. In the History menu, you have the new option to "Restore last window closed" on top of the previously existing "Restore all windows from previous session".
