On Beta, this is failing with much higher frequency than on trunk, mostly on Windows opt e10s. Gijs, do you know who might have cycles to look at this?

Not really. I'm not sure what the cause is off-hand. Random screenshots I look at show:
- about:home rather than print preview
- a blank tab with a spinner
- a spinner with the dialog for print preview prep mixed in

but the code for opening print preview in that test sure looks... interesting...

function openPrintPreview(aCallback) {
  executeSoon(function() {
    if (gInPrintPreviewMode) {

Where the callback tries to close print preview somehow.

I'm not sure that we can rely on print preview having finished initializing completely after just activating a command, and the recursive clicking of the command makes me wonder if that can exit print preview early, and thus leading to a confused state. So off-hand, my hypotheses would be:

1) something about the content process is slow and we haven't entered print preview completely by the time we exit (even though gInPrintPreviewMode is true), thus meaning we don't exit successfully when e.g. pressing access keys or [esc], thus breaking the test
2) we try to enter/exit multiple times because when the inner callback gets executed gInPrintPreviewMode is still false, and this breaks stuff.

It looks like Masayuki-san added this test originally. Maybe they have time to take a look. I don't know why it'd fail more often on beta and/or less often on nightly, either.

Hmm, I made access key handling at replay event phase starting from 56 (bug 1333459). It might affect this bug (Although, looks like no remote children has focus).

# Unfortunately, I don't have much time. I guess it's no problem to disable only access key test until somebody can work on this.

Skipped on Windows. There'll still be some failures lingering on Linux debug/ASAN, but this'll cut down on the noise a lot at least.
