    I have just noticed an irritating habit of firefox to close windows, at apparently random points. I realize that outside of games computers are not supposed to be random, so I assume I am causing the windows to go away.

    It always happens while I am typing into a text box. For instance, when posting on GT.

    I am not the most accurate typist on the planet, and my fingers sometime hit multiple keys at ones. When this occurs I am usually typing on the right side of the kbd.

    Is there some arcane key combination with ctl/alt/menu keys that will arbitrarily close a window?

    This is particularly irritating while posting long diatribes in the political forums -- hmmm ;R

    This seems to only happen in WinDoze, not linux. Kbd is a M$ Wireless Desktop Elite
