For parity with other browsers, would be nice if all the Web Developer panel menus/shortcuts acted as toggles. The shortcut workflows below can be reproduced using manual menu interaction also, so it's not limited to shortcuts. But it's where I noticed it :)

To reproduce:
o launch Nightly on OSX
o option+cmd+k (to open the console), it opens fine
o option+cmd+k (to close the console)

Expected:
Console closes, as it does on Chrome when invoking similar option+cmd+j.

Notably: Web Developer > Tools (option+cmd+i) and Debugger (option+cmd+s), Network (option+cmd+q), etc, work as toggles.

Workaround:
Use Tools (option+cmd+i) to 'get out' of those two panel states.

Observed:
The console and/or inspector windows stay up, where others above, close.

Configuration:
MacBook Pro 15-inch
OSX 10.10.5
2.6 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory 16 GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB

Apologies if this is a dupe, or pilot error :)
