      When XWiki search suggestions appear, from both the search box and the "jump to any page" box (Ctrl+G), pressing Up or Down keys doesn't do anything in Firefox. The Escape key doesn't work either. This is particularly annoying for those who are used to use keyboard shortcuts instead of mouse.

      The same problem is confirmed when testing in an anonymous window - with no Firefox extensions activated. No errors or warnings appear in the JS console. There is no problem with the keys in Chrome or IE.

      It is also strange it seems like no one reported this before, because it seems to be a pretty old problem already... It looks like the problem was actually reported at XWIKI-16094 and XWIKI-16096, but it looks like the reporter couldn't see it's rather a generic problem related exclusively to Firefox. There is also an older XWIKI-11370 which might be related.

      Repro: Go to any page, e. g. Getting Started, let the search field suggest some search results. In Firefox, the aforementioned keys don't do anything.
