Once we allow the console to be available in other panels via a split view, ESC should toggle that split view open/closed.
It probably shouldn't toggle it, no? It should probably just close it. If we want a toggle that shouldn't be ESC, it should be a specific hotkey.
Chrome's will also open it, which is why I put that in this bug.

Verified as fixed with the latest Nightly build from 2013-12-04, on: Win 8 64-bit, Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit and Mac OS X 10.9 (both 32-bit and 64-bit).

ESC toggles the console split view open/closed. I can see the console split view as shown here: https://bug862558.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=828842 for all tools, excepting "Console".

Also, as Paul suggested, I've tried the following scenario, that works with success on all platforms mentioned above:

1. In latest Aurora, disable the Web Console
2. Start latest Nightly with the same profile
3. See ESC to disable/enable the split console still works (it does)

Please let me know if there is anything else that needs to be tested for this feature. Thanks!

Retested all of the above, receiving the same results, with the Holly build from 2013-12-04, on: Win 8 64-bit, Mac OS X 10.9 and Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit.
Verified as fixed with the latest Aurora, on: Win 8.1 64-bit, Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit and Mac OS X 10.8.5.
