About this Add-on
This add-on allows you to close many tabs with a single click. Select File->Close Multiple Tabs, or just press Ctrl+Q to open a dialog showing the list of tabs that are currently open. You can select the tabs you wish to close from the list, and click OK (or just hit Enter!) to close them. If all the tabs are selected, then you have the option of choosing between a blank page and the browser's homepage.This way you can get rid of all the tabs and start a new session, without having to, perhaps, restart the browser.
Tip: Use Select All and deselect the tabs you need when you wish to get rid of all but a few tabs (like 3 or 4 out of 20), and use Select None and select the tabs you wish to close if they are few in number. This way, you'll find this add-on really handy.

Someone was nice enough to tell me that there's an add-on called Key-Config, using which you can change the keyboard shortcut for this add-on, if that's a problem (it is if you are a Linux user, or have the FoxTab add-on installed).
I realize that Ctrl+Q is perhaps, too important a shortcut to assign to this add-on, but this has been done only to make the add-on easily accessible, because those who actually find this add-on useful will find themselves using it quite often (at least that's the case with me), and fumbling repeatedly with a Ctrl+Shift+Something combination can be quite annoying.
