A report from pgCon 2013
which is better? having some portions of the app unavailable? or having some portions of the browser unavailable?
in my case it's more annoying to have the portions of the app unavailable, but I can understand how other people would want it the other way.
the particular command-line app that I run into trouble with most frequently pre-dates the start of firefox, let alone chrome, so you can't blame the app for using a 'reserved' key combination.
think about this a bit more, how can a browser know what key combinations are reserved by the Desktop Environment? what should happen if you have a conflict there?
I hope Mozilla funds Gnash development

I meant that the user should be the one to make the choice, not the application.

Then make it an option in browser preferences.
