Focus Problems

Problem / Frustration

I’ve always been frustrated after doing a “Find” in Firefox


or bringing up the Mac “Force Quit Applications” window


that I’m not able to close it with a keyboard shortcut because it looses focus. Well, the other day I figured out one way to close both using the keyboard! Woohooo!

How To Fix

  1. Use same keyboard shortcut to bring up same window
  2. Press ‘esc’
  3. Done!
