How do I close one tab without all of them closing?

Firefox 3.whatever is current
XP sp3

After reading the thread about using tabs vs opening a new browser window I've been trying them but I keep closing all of them by clicking on the x at the top right corner and I really only want to close that one.

How do I just close one?

each tab should have a red x at the end of it's name you click that x to close only that tab, the big x at the top of the page closes the entire firefox. or you can right click on any tab and choose close from the drop down list.

Thank you. I do see the red x on each tab but I'm used to closing up at the top right and keep doing it. Annoying when I have several tabs open.

buyorsell888, you can close the tab you are in by hitting CTRL W.
