Stopped Closing Some Tabs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've relied on this add-on for a long time to close almost every tab, but it has stopped closing some and has NEVER closed Google. I've heard that some websites write their pages so that an ESC press will move the cursor to a text box, so that you can't easily leave their page(s), and that seems to be the case now.
Perhaps a "check" to see that in fact, there IS a movement to one of these boxes before "giving up" on closing the tab.

ONE simple AddOn which makes the marriage with Firefox more wonderful. Thanxx!

Simple yet useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply does what it says: press Esc to close the current tab. That's just what I needed. It allows me to surf faster.

Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you use Customizable Shortcuts 0.9.5 or higher EscCloseTab works perfectly:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/customizable-shortcuts/versions/?page=1#version-0.9.5

EscCloseTab conflicts with Customizable Shortcuts version 0.6.2 (EscCloseTab refuses to function). Updating Customizable Shortcuts to 0.9.5 or up fixes the problem.

I think this is one of the best extensions there is. I rely on it a lot. Unfortunately, it quit working when FF was updated about two updates back.

I have FF 27.0.1 on Kubuntu distro of Linux.

I went to the website and studied the code there, but can find nothing wrong (I am not an expert). Hopefully the problem will be fixed soon because I miss using the escape key to close a tab. Until it's fixed I guess I'll just have to use the mouse or touchpad to click the tab close x on the tab (sigh).

It was definitely a five when it was working.

Update 3/6/2014:

I failed to mention before that I had the problem on Windows 7 & XP, also.

But I found the problem, it was the Active Stop Button extension update to version 1.5.0.

Simple fix is to revert to Active Stop Button 1.4.10, or stop using one or the other.

GaryOB, thank you for your compliment. I use FF 27.0.1 too, and my extension works as always, i.e. it does work. Did you install any other extensions? One of them might conflict with mine. Unfortunately, I do not use linux (Of course, I should have used it but i'm too lazy to learn it), on my windows 7 in FF 27.0.1 my ext. does work. So, I don't think EscCloseTab is not compatible with the latest FF, so I may recommend to temporarily disable some other extensions (just to check whether it starts working) or try my ext. on a clear FF profile.

great shortcut using the escape key to close tabs. Comes in handy for all those porno sites!

Simple, fast, verry good!

doesn't work on some social media plattforms. That's a fault by the plattforms (java scripts) and NOT a mistake from this tool.

Wer viel mit der Funktion "Alle in Tabs öffnen" arbeitet, wird es nicht mehr missen wollen, nicht benötigte Tabs hiermit sehr schnell und auf einfache Art zu schließen !

Genius! (but...) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm actually wondering WHY this is not included by default, it's a SO GREAT behaviour :)
One little thing: sometimes I can't close my first tab (even if it's not the only opened tab), sometimes I can... it's totally random. Others tab I can close always.

Hi, i like this addon, very useful,
When no tabs, esc close firefox, it will be good an options to allow esc close by default and last tab no close with esc (preventing close browser)
thank you
