User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b12pre) Gecko/20110217 Firefox/4.0b12pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b12pre) Gecko/20110217 Firefox/4.0b12pre

When I use either the volume up/down controls or the mute button the panorama search is activated. This happens on a my laptop, a Compaq 6910p with the buttons above the keyboard (hp quick launch buttons)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open panorama
2. adjust volume with the said buttons
Actual Results:  
panorama search activates and for example the mute action is canceled

Expected Results:  
search stays inactive and default action is performed

this may be related to bug 628165 somehow?

Reproduceable on:

For me, each one of the media keys (on keyboard: music, calculator, volume up, volume down et cetera) activates search in panorama. However I can close search only using the ESC key

This is a bug in current nighties (Firefox 7) as well. It also affects the screen brightness up and down keys on my HP Envy 14 laptop. However, the default actions are not cancelled on this computer.

Panorama has been removed from Firefox 45, currently in Beta and scheduled for release on March 7th. As such, I'm closing all existing Panorama bugs.

If you are still using Panorama, you will see a deprecation message in Firefox 44, and when 45 is released your tab group data will be migrated to bookmarks, with a folder for each group. There are also a few addons offering similar functionality.

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tab-groups-removal for more info.

We're removing Panorama because it has extremely low usage (about 0.01% of users), and has a large number of bugs and usability issues. The cost of fixing all those issues is far too high to justify, and so we'll instead be focusing our time and energy on improving other parts of Firefox.
