The following report makes the bug platform independent:

Page Info keyboard shortcut should toggle Page Info, just like
Downloads window keyboard shortcut toggles Download window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Open the Page Info window with its shortcut (which varies from platform) (keep
modifier keys (Alt/Alt Gr/Ctrl/Shift/etc...) pressed after the window appeared,
but don't press the letter you have to press along them)

2. Press the letter you used along the modifier keys.

Actual Results:  
The Page Info window does not disappear.

Expected Results:  
The Page Info window should disappear, just like Downloads windows disappears when doing the same steps (but with its own key binding).

Proposed patch

Ctrl+I doesn't open Page Info on Windows, so it shouldn't close it either.

On Windows, Ctrl+I opens the Bookmarks sidebar. That's a rather silly IE compatibility thing. Maybe we can drop that. Do other browsers support this on Windows?

1. SeaMonkey uses CTRL-I to open the page info window on Windows.
2. Does MSIE9 still have a bookmarks sidebar? (note I haven't used MSIE since, uh, I forget).
IE9 still has the Favorites sidebar with the Ctrl+i shortcut. There appears to be no keyboard  shortcut for the pageInfo dialog on Windows.
Any decision on this yet? Should this be made Unix-specific?
You can try to redefine Ctrl+I on Windows and request ui-review from ux-review@mozilla.com.
Is this still the case, or is there a Windows keyboard shortcut working now?

Ctrl+I still opens bookmarks sidebar. I didn't find any obvious keyboard shortcut to open page info. Could be nice for someone.  Not sure why this was never flagged as "New" from "Unconfirmed".
