ESC, RETURN, left, right, top and bottom shortcuts don't work if the veil is not focused.

This also happens when the breadcrumbs are clicked (when they get the focus).

Should ESC should also work from the Style Panel?

I think this is a pretty annoying, and I think this should be fixed in Firefox 11 (Aurora).
