CTRL + W on Firefox

Found a irritating bug on Firefox, while studying Flex I made Firefox my default browser. So when I run my application it loads on Firefox. But it seems like for sites rendered in flash, the keyboard shortcut CTRL + W for closing tabs doesn’t work. File – Close Tab menu though works. So I have to manually x out to close the tab. Would be great if this bug was solved specially for Flex developers using Firefox.

More on this bug here.


*Update* With FireFox 3.5 this bug has been addressed. With full flash sites or flash content currently focused you can hit CTRL + W and the tab closes. Yey!
