Maybe there could be an option to control if a tab should close if a device gets unmounted.

    I agree.

    There could be an option to move to the topmost available directory instead, or just inform the user that the current directory has been unmounted.

    The alternative option to go to Home is implemented in current GIT sources for PCManFM.
    Go to topmost available directory is not instant (it will require some number of disk reads and might freeze) so isn't good option for lightweight file manager.
    Thank you very much.

    Thanks for all the effort :)

    I have more thought about something "just do nothing - just show the empty tab without any error message". For example so I could simply switch my USB sticks and press F5 (if this isn't be done automatcally) to get the new content. Always navigating back to the mountpoint generates much work as I'm sometimes expermimenting with mounts.

    There is no support for "empty tab". Implementation will require quite a lot of work with full implementation of that special pseudo-folder object, and also add support for that new object class into numerous places. There is no developer at this moment who has enough spare time and desire to do that big rewrite. I'm sorry.

    And about your example - you don't need to navigate to mountpoint. If that is an automount object then it will be shown in sidepane (or on desktop if you enable it in preferences). If that is a manually mounted object then you can add link on mountpoint either to bookmarks, or to desktop, access will be as easy as ever, you just click icon instead of press F5.
