I want to implement onbeforeunload  on tab close but want to disable  onbeforeunload  on form submission :

$('input[type="submit"]').on("click", function (e) {
      window.onbeforeunload = function() {};
      $(window).unbind('beforeunload');
});

$('input[type="submit"]').on("click", function (e) {
    // set a flag
    window.form_submit = true;
});

then in your onbeforeunload

$(window).on("beforeunload", function (e) {
    if (!form_submit) {
        // do what you want in the beforeunload
    }
});
