But it sure seems like something does. The specific combination, which  
has always worked for me in the past, is control-T to open a new tab,  
control-K to get to the web search field. This failure appears even  
with firefox run as indicated above.

If, after opening the tab, I take care to click on the window,  
control-K works again.
