Samsung Magician Stops Ctrl-w From Working

Kent - January 31, 2024

I’m an avid user of CTRL-w to close tabs in Firefox. It turns out when there is an update to Samsung Magician pending, it will capture that keypress and stop any application or game to use CTRL-w system wide.

And I thought it was the Tree Style Tabs extension acting weird, since it also had some problems.

The problem is not confined within Firefix, all other browsers using CTRL-w will also be subject to the same bug.
