Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.8) Gecko/20071008 SeaMonkey/1.1.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.8) Gecko/20071008 SeaMonkey/1.1.5

The combination key AppleKey + W (that is set as CLOSE function in File menu) doesn't work with Find pop-up window.
It doesn't work neither from File menu, but just clicking on 1st button (close, X, on the left)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a find window (AppleKey + F key)
2. Close it wit AppleKey + W key
3. Close it selecting the Close option from File menu
4. Both don't work


Expected Results:  
Is it not possible to integrate Find search in the bottom of page, as in Firefox?

Esc works, though
miu,

Can you reproduce with SeaMonkey v1.1.9 ?
Version: unspecified → SeaMonkey 1.1 Branch

I'm not actually interested myself in the answer:
I'm only (trying to help) bulk triaging...

What sounds like the same bug is present in SeaMonkey 2.1b2 "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b11) Gecko/20110209 Firefox/4.0b11 SeaMonkey/2.1b2" on Kubuntu Linux.

1. Click the [Advanced...] button in Mail and Newsgroups window, or choose Tools > Search Messages... from the menu.
2. In the "Search Messages" window that appears, press Ctrl+W.
Nothing happens.

Likewise, Ctrl+W doesn't work to close Tools > Search Messages... "Advanced Address Book Search".  From comment #1, Esc does work in both to close (which seems weird non-standard behavior for a non-modal window).

I dunno if it happens on Windows too, but the Platform for this bug is not solely Mac.

This behaviour is also present on comm-central trunk:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.2a1pre) Gecko/20110409 Firefox/4.2a1pre SeaMonkey/2.2a1pre ID:20110409123736

In general, "tabs or non-multitab windows" are closed by Ctrl+W, "popups" are closed by Esc. This search widget is apparently regarded as a popup, unlike e.g. the (mailer or browser) "View Source" window (which can be closed by Ctrl+W but not by Esc). The browser's "File Info" widget will close on either Esc or Ctrl+W so what is it? "Both a popup and a window"?
