Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0
Build ID: 20161019084923

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a page where flash is given focus.
2. Attempt to use "alt-f", then "x" to exit the browser entirely.


Actual results:

Alt-f is captured by flash and makes the plugin run full screen.


Expected results:

Alt-f should open the "File" menu, and x should select "eXit".

That is the standard for all pages without a flash element.  The behaviour with a flash element is therefore, non-standard.

It's possible that this is true not just for flash, but all plugins that steal focus.  With flash, it's probably a security hole.

At the very least, the following combos should probably be reserved for the browser, outside a full screen plugin: alt-f, alt-e, alt-s, alt-b, alt-t, alt-h
