If I press my Esc in the File Selection dialog after clicking the upload area, both the file explorer and the uploader dialog are closed. This is consistent on both Chrome and Firefox. I think only the file explorer should be closed.

Can the Esc press please not propagate down to the uploader? Note than when clicking the "Cancel" button, the uploader is not being closed.

  • You have some pretty serious data on key-press timings. Does this have to do with some sort of custom configuration due to.. restraints? Why are you needing to press esc? Jun 23 '15 at 12:48

    How is this a bug? It used to be like that from the beginning, and Escape is standard key to abort actions. You can turn this into feature request, but I'll still disagree. I want a quick way to abort the dialog. Jun 23 '15 at 13:20
  • @ShadowWizard it could still abort the dialogue - but if I escape from the browse window, why would I want to close the upload as well?

  • Oops, my bad. For some reason I mistook "browse window" as "browser window" thinking you mean when focus is on the uploader. Agree the ESC key press should not propagate further. Jun 23 '15 at 17:47
  • OK, changed your bug report a bit. It's really not relevant that if you press the key faster than light it's "working" - no sane person will do that. :) Jun 23 '15 at 17:52
  • @ShadowWizard Sorry, I was thinking it in my head and ummm... forgot to write it down :)

  • I've retracted my comment, as it makes sense now :) - It seemed like you were saying you needed the escape key to only work within some bonkers time frame :P
