Whenever you press Control+W the current tab closes - just as the documentation says. This only is problematic, when you are used to "Control+W deletes the last word" and have to edit a huge text (for example this bug report) inside Firefox. Whenever I do a major typo and am not careful enough, the whole tab including the text disappears. That sometimes means the work of several minutes. _Please_ make some rule, that inside text fields (or even the address bar and other fields?) Control+W does delete the last word and not close the tab. A confirmation dialog "This will close the tab, not delete a word!" would be OK, too. Thanks a lot, Carsten Otto Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Write something in my guestbook or any other form field for several minutes. 2. Press Control+W 3. Despair! Actual Results: Tab closes. Expected Results: Word deleted, tab not closed OR warning message displayed.
Putting following line into .gtkrc-2.0 solves the problem - that's good enough for me. # cat ~/.gtkrc-2.0 gtk-key-theme-name = "Emacs"
