BUG: Browser forward/back keys ignored in Table views & others

ALT-Right and ALT-Left move the current cell selection in the Table, just like plain Right and Left cursor keys do.

ALSO: Browser Back/Forward Keys are ignored in some other situations, such as when viewing “Database Automations” from a DB “Overview” page (i.e., a page reached by clicking a DB name in the left column).

ALSO: In a DB “Overview” page, if you click Relations to see the popup map, navigating “Back” does not close the Relations popup map (though it does display the previous page).

@Matt_Blais Could you please clarify what behavior do you expect on alt+right / alt+ left in table?

Regarding two other points in comment, we were able to reproduce them and submitted bugs.

Ideally the browser navigation keys will always perform their navigation function, unless you are actually editing a text field.

So when you are in “cell selection” mode in the Table (i.e. moving, and not actively editing a cell), the browser navigation keys would still perform their normal function.

It seems that issue is actual for Firefox only. In Chrome this case works fine

Actually I am using Chrome. Which case did you not reproduce?

Also in these pages, Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown are trapped and not passed to the browser.

Do you use Windows OS? I’ve checked on MacOs , where ⌘ + [ / ⌘ + ] hotkeys are used for back/forward navigation and they work ok in tables.

Thanks for that observation, I’ll check this case as well
