Description

5 years ago
Most dialogs in Firefox--including Add-ons, Downloads, Error Console, Page Info, and Preferences/Options--can be closed by hitting the escape key, but the DOM inspector dialog box cannot.  Nevertheless, I keep trying to close it by hitting the escape key, since I'm so used to doing that with other dialogs.

For consistency with the rest of the interface, and so users like me don't have to spend that extra moment readjusting their flow and thinking about how to close the dialog, it would be good to be able to close that dialog with the escape key as well.

Reproducible always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Tools -> Web Develepor -> DOM Inspector
2. Press Escape
3. Observe saved passwords box appearing

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
DOM Inspector dialog box should close.
A screenshot would help here. I'm not sure what you mean by DOM Inspector in fact because:
- the devtools inspector isn't a dialog box, and it says "Inspector" in the menu, not "DOM Inspector"
- there is an addon called DOM Inspector which opens a new window, so it might be what you are referring to.

If you press CTRL+SHIFT+I, you will get the DOM Inspector dialog box. And it does not open in a new window.

Thanks for the screenshot, this confirms that this bug isn't filed in the right product/component.
It should be in Other Applications / DOM Inspector (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/DOM_Inspector#Report_a_bug_in_DOM_Inspector).
For some reason, I can't change it in bugzilla.
Component: Developer Tools: Inspector → DOM Inspector
Product: Firefox → Other Applications

Bugzilla is being annoying - you need to change the product, leaving the component at the old, now impossible value, and then submit. Bugzilla will then say "whaaa that component is wrong, pick a valid one" and then you're good.

Yes, that's bug 227611.
Bulk close. This component is no longer supported or maintained.
