Recently, an update has changed Chrome's behaviour when I try to close the last tab: Now nothing happens, previously it would close the window. Since Dennis couldn't reproduce this issue on the same version, this seems to be some kind of glitch instead of intention on Google's part. What may be causing this and how to fix it?

Which version of Chrome are you using? I can't reproduce this on v20.0.1132.57. –  Dennis Jul 30 '12 at 18:37
    
Also 20.0.1132.57 m. So it's probably not a change of behaviour but rather a glitch. –  Erik Jul 30 '12 at 18:48

Do you have any of the many last tab extensions installed? Maybe you had it disabled and recently enabled it. –  Synetech Jul 30 '12 at 18:56

Starting with the obvious: Can you close Chrome at all? Did you try a restart? –  Dennis Jul 30 '12 at 18:59

Do you have the Chrome Toolbox installed, perhaps? One of its settings allows you to close the final tab without closing the browser. –  Al E. Jul 31 '12 at 16:28
