Perhaps the patch in bug 692071 might fix this, Lucas?

Regression from bug 691175.  If I can't find a simple fix for this, I'm starting to think we should back the whole mess out (bug 682017 and its dependencies).

Attached patch patchSplinter Review
So, we removed our custom JavaScript key event forwarding, and started letting the platform forward key events for us (bug 682017).

This broke keyboard shortcuts, so we restored part of our JavaScript code to pass key events back from content to chrome and re-dispatch them (bug 683736).

The re-dispatching caused handleEscape to get called twice for the same key press in some cases.  We fixed this by making handleEscape wait for events to bubble up to the window, instead of capturing them on the way down.  Then we could stop forwarded events from bubbling (bug 684558).

But this broke cases where the events don't bubble, like in the awesomescreen.  We fixed that by going back to capturing, but ignoring the event the first time, when it's headed toward the browser (bug 691175).

But that doesn't work for cases where the event is heading toward the browser but isn't forwarded to content; then we won't handle the event at all.  So this patch instead handles the event the first time, but ignores it the second time when it's redispatched by KeyFilter.

This fixes the bug, and does not regress any of the related bugs or tests, and is not any hackier than what was here before.  I'll write a new test for this regression before checking in the patch, and I'm still working on understanding the platform logic here and how we need to work with it or fix it.
