Marking/closing questions as a duplicate is a delicate subject, and there is a thin line between whether a post is a duplicate or not.

This one however hurts my eyes. While OP clearly mentions he wants to close the latest opened window (instance) of Firefox, the question was closed as a duplicate of a question about closing a tab of Firefox. Quite different. I even explained it in the comment.

An interesting detail is that the first one to mark as a duplicate also answered the question after marking it as duplicate.

Moreover, the supposed duplicate does not offer a solution sideways as well.

Can this be undone?

    Couldn't make it in time to nominate it for reopening, it's reopened already!

For the record, questions are only duplicates when the questions are the same. Answer overlap is a fact of life, let it happen. People are going to search for their problem, not someone else's similar problem.

    Paying attention doesnt hurt either.
