Cycle through all open windows via the keyboard
Authored by: Graff on Jun 10, '05 02:01:20PM

Weird, I've never changed any of the preferences that deal with Keyboard Navigation but my shortcut is set to control-W not control-F4. I wonder why that is, I'm running the Mac OS X 10.4.1 with all the latest updates and everything and really nothing else that would cause a change like that.

I did change the value, and that's what I set mine to... Ctrl-W... of course, I forgot I made the change and tried doing Ctrl+F4 while I was in Mozilla Firefox. It was changing windows so I thought everything was hunky dory... Then I noticed that it was *closing* windows instead of switching windows... Looks like Ctrl-F4 means "Close window" in Firefox (just like on Windows--Alt+F4 means Exit application in Windows)... Glad I hadn't started typing this comment! :-P

This is most likely due to what you chose when Full Keyboard Access was introduced (in 10.1?) - here you had to options - Letters or F-keys…

Then you upgraded (10.2-10.3-10.4…) as opposed to clean installed and that setting was kept alive ;-)
