For example, if I switch to Chrome's window using QuickSilver and press CMD+O, if the developer tools windows is focused, it will open the "Source" tag on it:

Instead of focusing the URL bar on top, which is what it does normally. This is really annoying because I have to click on the screen to unfocus the developer tools bar all the time. How can I avoid this?


⌘O is assigned to File > Open File... for me. Have you assigned a custom shortcut for View Source in the keyboard preference pane? Or could the shortcut be changed by some extension?

This should disable the shortcuts in the developer menu:

defaults write com.google.Chrome NSUserKeyEquivalents '{"View Source"="\0";"Developer Tools"="\0";"JavaScript Console"="\0";}'

You have to quit and reopen Chrome to apply changes. You can undo it with defaults delete com.google.Chrome NSUserKeyEquivalents.
