Re: closing tabs under Chrome with NVDA

Not on my system, something is weird.


I opened 3 tabs under Firefox and ctrl+w closed all of them and terminated Firefox completely.


I am running Firefox ESR.

Ctrl+f4 and Ctrl+w both close the current tab in Firefox, if it is the only tab open at the time the browser will close.  Chrome works the same.

Well, under Firefox ctrl+f4 closes the tab I am currently viewing.  ctrl+w closes the browser.  I have never tried using ctrl+w under Firefox before now.

 

Under Chrome ctrl+f4 closes the browser and ctrl+w closes the current tab if I have multiple tabs open.

What does control w do?  If you have multiple windows opened in other programs, what does control f4 and control w do?

Wow! Maybe there is something wrong with my system.  I have tried this lots of times because of my habit from using Firefox.  But no matter how many tabs I have open it always closes all of them and terminates Chrome.

 

Oh well.

I don't know why control f4 closes the program when there are multiple tabs opened.  Here, it closes the tab I'm in and nothing else.

Actually, with multiple tabs open ctrl+f4 closes all tabs.  That is why I was trying to find out what would close just one tab.  It acts like alt+f4 and that surprised me.

CTRL-F4 does indeed work.  In fact ctrl-w used to do something else in chrome, so if it works now, it's a change.

Hi,



How do I do this?  I can close the entire browser but not just a tab.  I don't see a way in the help either.



Thanks.
