I'm running into a curious behavior where pressing w after cmd-` (to switch windows of an application) causes the switched-to window to close, as if I had input cmd-shift-w, rather than just inputting w. This has arisen several times where I'm switching between Chrome windows and typing a message in one of them; when I switch back and start typing a word that begins with "w" that window closes.
Running Sierra (10.12.2). Reproduced on Mac Pro and on 13in Macbook Pro after restart.
I am running various background applications but wanted to see if anyone could reproduce this first.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open any application that supports multiple tabs and multiple windows. I tested this with Google Chrome and with Sublime Text 3.
- Open two windows, each with two tabs.
- Try using the cmd-` shortcut to switch between windows.
- After switching between windows with cmd-` and letting go of those keys, quickly press w.
Expected: w gets input into the window I just switched to.
Actual: The window closes, in the same way that it would if I had input cmd-shift-w.
