 It probably is also a matter of wording. I am a non-native english
 speaker, and I find the buttons confusing too:
 "Save And Quit", "Don't Save and Quit" "Cancel"

+oh nice for mozilla to submit the form when I was editing it. Argh!
+Anyway. Read the above comment of mine first. So I dont have problem
+understanding the "Don't" vs. "Do not", that is clear. But "Don't Save
+and Quit" makes me wonder what it means. "Do not save, do not quit" or
+"Do not save, just quit"? On MacOS there is a similar dialog, it 
+reads "Quit without saving" which we probably should use instead, I,
+the non-native speaker, had no problem understanding it. I dont think
+the "Don't" is the problem but just unclear wording ("do not and do").
