- Browser: Google Chrome Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)
- Operating system: macOS Sierra version 10.12.6 (16G29)
- Chrome is in full-screen mode (i.e., in its own Space)
- Toolbar is not showing
- Any c9 IDE terminal tab has focus
Three browser-defined shortcuts stop working when the three conditions above are all true:
- Open a new tab, and jump to it (⌘ + t)
- Jump to the next open tab (⌘ + Option + Right arrow and ⌘ + Shift + ])
- Jump to the previous open tab (⌘ + Option + Left arrow and ⌘ + Shift + [)
Does this matter?
Browser-tab switching is fairly frequent and important when testing a web app that needs a lot of space. (In my case, a composite of JSmol and JSME.)
Obvious work-around is to show toolbar. On my display, this is 10% of real-estate, so not ideal.
What have I tried?
- When I try these shortcuts with the browser console open, there is no response, not even an error message.
- No IDE commands are bound to these shortcuts.
- Shortcut keys work when editor tab has focus. Because of this IDE-state dependence, I infer that the c9 interface is partly to blame, not just the browser.
- Add ability two switch between tabs without it conflicting with Chromes own shortcuts. The answer does not address my problem.
- Avoid closing / switching the tab when using browser tab closing / switching shortcut. This post has no replies.
- Other shortcut related posts are about the browser blocking the IDE’s response to a shortcut. My problem is the opposite, in which the IDE blocks the browser’s response.

Any ideas? Is there an IDE or browser setting that might fix this?
