With a view to devising a prevention strategy, I wonder what miskeying, while I type a forum post, would cause the browser (Firefox) to close ?

for a list of shortcuts used in Firefox, take a look here: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly

If you want to prevent data loss because you close a window or accidentally go forward or backward, I would recommend the firefox addon text area cache: https://addons.mozilla.org/En-us/firefox/addon/textarea-cache/

is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!
