i have a small problem when browsing through full-flash pages on firefox like flash games, as i am used to change between the tabs using only the keyboard, Ctrl+Tab or just close the tab, Ctrl+W this doesn't work in flash elements... like in Youtube if i click the video and then press the combination, it does nothing but changing the focus on each element of the flash player in that case like the sound button and fullscreen button, but in there i can click outside the video with a minor mouse click and it works normal, the problem is in a game i play which the whole page is in flash and i can't click outside of flash element, thus making me using the mouse to change tabs... on chrome (at least last time i used) it doesn't have this problem, is there any workaround?

Also does anyone know what makes it different from chrome? Does chrome listen to the keyboard separately and prioritizes "global" commands like Ctrl+Tab or something?

That's your comment? LOL, i just said in chrome it works, firefox doesn't, that was an additional question due to my curiosity. – SomeNickName Feb 15 '14 at 18:32
Google developed their own version of the Flash player (Pepper Flash), Chrome doesn't use Adobe's version. – Drahcir Feb 15 '14 at 20:01
Well okay, that can explain the "problem", thank you. (sorry for the delay response.) – SomeNickName Feb 16 '14 at 20:45
