Your build is too old to report bug. Can you download a younger nightly, install it cleanly and see if the bug is still alive ? As it is written in red here : http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi "Also, please do not file bugs on copies of Mozilla older than two weeks." Thanks.
Frederick, sorry, but the 2-week thing is ridiculous. The build is being reported with something _newer_ than our latest release. Yes, it's not today's nightly, but that's life. And since I see this all the time in current nightlies on Linux too, I'm confirming it. aaronl, should this be yours?

Ever confirmed: true
What is the window manager that you use? Some Moz shortcuts are taken over by the window manager. For instance my KDE3.1 uses CTRL-TAB to run through my different desktops, and therefore breaks the Moz functionality of running trough different tabs. Perhaps you can try figuring out if CTRL-W is reserved by your distro for other purposes
Sorry. I won't touch anymore linux related bugs :-)
Ctrl-w works fine in all cases but that described in comment 0 for me.
this seems just like another dup of Bug 112337.
Ah, indeed. I'd thought aaronl had fixed this.... and it had regressed... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 112337 ***
