Firefox Windows 3.0.1. I create a tab. I go to the Web address french.typeit.org . I press Control W. The tab must close. It doesn't. I am OK for a dialog "OK to lose your text?" and requiring a yes and then closing. But, currently, nothing happens, no dialog, no closing. Thanks for fixing this bug. Nicolas
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110720 Firefox/8.0a1 I can confirm that is not possible to close the tab for the page french.typeit.org by pressing CTRL+W. But also, this behavior is encountered on several browsers (IE8, Safari 5.0, Opera 11.10). IMO this issue is web site related.
The issue is Web page related. The bug lies in the Web browser. The Web browser is responsible for processing the standard key combination.

When I am in the text area, the same, with variants, goes for Ctrl A and Ctrl C. Ctrl A does not select all, but writes some text. Ctrl C, when nothing is selected, writes some text. Although right-clicking in the text area gives me the contextual menu with "Select all" and "Copy".
I encounter the same bug in Firefox 16.0.2 on Linux.
