@sgunhouse thanks for the response. Ok, so then there is no cancel mechanism for the navigation. This is different than Firefox (tab-switch with preview) and Mac OS x app navigation; both allow cancellation of the navigation.

Opera loses page focus on searchOpera for Mac
After a search on the page is performed and I hit ESC to cancel the search, I am not sure what happens to the focus. Any navigation key combination (up, down, next tab, address bar) results in an error sound.
All I can do is hit tab (which changes my location on the page). I think F9 is supposed to give the page the focus (based on http://help.opera.com/Linux/9.50/en/keyboard.html - Focus Keys section, although it is for Linux).
Is this a bug such that the focus is not on the page anymore? Any workarounds? Thanks!
RE: Unable to cancel tab switchOpera for Mac
@zalex108 thank you for your response, however, my problem is not that the previews are persistent. It is that once I hit ctrl+tab, I see the previews. Now, if I want to cancel the tab switch, there is nothing I can do. Hitting ESC doesn't stop the switch (browser navigates to the next tab).
Is this a bug or is there a key combination that I can press that can cancel the navigation? Thanks.
