Bad behavior of ESC key.

  • Many many times you wanna click ESC to exit video player fullscreen or light box gallery and Opera exits fullscreen mode, which is kind of unexpected behavoir.

    It's even more epic when there is input to browse files to upload.. You click on it, you get dialog box to pick file to upload.. You decide you don't wanna upload and you want to close the dialog. Your natural instincts kick in, you click ESC - and BAAANG - dialog never closes but yet Opera is no more in fullscreen state.

  • Please do something about this.. It's really annoying..

  • Still extremely annoying, every finished youtube video i have reenter fullscreen mode...

    I just had to enter fullscreen for the 50th time today and...

    No, it is not practically the same, at least not on OSX.

  • Seems pretty much the same to me. Either way, it takes up the whole screen.
