if you click inside the popup dialog [to bring it into focus], will ctrl+W dismiss it? if so, that's a known focus bug, afaik. jrgm, d'you remember the bug number[s] for the "need to click to bring focus before keyboard shortcuts will work" issue? i'll go search, too...
might be related to bug 58853, but that pertains to dialogs --not sure if it also covers js popups. saari/aaronl/jesse, is there a toolkit bug for this?

Okay, this works for me - Accel+W closes to popup as long as I wait until the popup is finished loading. OTOH, Alt+F4 works even if it hasn't finished loading. Can someone else verify that this is correct? If so, we can look to see where Alt+F4 and Accel+W are coded, and move the coding for Accel+W to be the same as Alt+F4, right?
No, Accel-W never works for me to close a popup window; not when the window first pops up, not after it has finished loading, nor after I click on the window and try to close it with the shortcut.
Can someone tell me if Ctrl+W is supposed to act exactly the same as Alt+F4?
afaik ctrl-w should only affect navigator windows, not alerts, not dialogs, (not sure about non navigator creatures...) As for the intended question (should ctrl-w and alt-f4 behave the same for navigator windows) i'm not sure, if there happens to be a dom reason for them to be different then...
I think Ctrl+W is supposed to close all of those windows. However, I think it sometimes intended to delete a word (in UNIX). That's why it can't work exactly the same. Reassigning to Ben, as a chrome issue, who can find the right person for it.

dupe of bug 103758 ??
This works for me in a new nightly. I don't even have to click in the popup first to make it work, but even if you do, that's a separate (filed) bug. That said, can anyone still not close popup windows with ctrl+w even after clicking within the window?
