Steps to reproduce:
1. Press Ctrl+Shift+K to open the Web Console.
2. Make sure the Web Console has the focus.
3. Press Ctrl+W.

Actual result:
Nothing happens.

Expected result:
The current tab should be closed. Firefox 20 worked as expected.

One of 3 bugs, probably:

Masatoshi, thank you for the bug report.

Loic, thanks for the regression window. This bug is caused by the global-console patch indeed.

I will submit a fix ASAP.

so, we disable cmd_close on general web consoles and enable it on browser console? makes sense.

did this have something to do with closing the tab or are you just adding some extra error catching smarts to the console?

This change is unrelated to this bug. I had an XPCOM exception in my code while working on it and Console.jsm wasn't playing nice. I fixed it such that the exception is displayed correctly.

I wasn't sure if I should piggyback this change here or to create a separate bug. We do not generally want to spend too much time on Console.jsm, hence I decided that "slipping" gradual improvements is acceptable. I can split it into a separate patch if you want.
