User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 There's inconsistent ( i think ) keyboard shortcut handling in text fields. Both in webpages, and text fields in the application (location/search) as well. It seems that, while the focus is in a text field, text based keyboard shortcuts take precedence over application based shortcuts. For example, CTRL+W deletes the last word, rather than closing the current tab. I think that this is fine when the focus is in form fields in the actual page, but seems counter-intuitive when the focus is in application fields, such as the Location or Search bars. This causes such issues as, when I mistakenly open a new tab, and it opens in front of the tab I was viewing, I can't just hit CTRL+W to close it, I have use the mouse to take the focus away from the location bar before I can close the tab. I'd like to see the application preferences take precedence in the application text fields, rather than text shortcuts. Or at least, a hidden preference to change this behavior. I also can't really decide if this is a minor bug, or a enhancement request. oh well. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Put focus in location bar. 2. Press CTRL+W (close tab) Actual Results: last word type deleted Expected Results: tab closure
