    When the cursor is in the search field of a page like Yahoo, or whatever, the short cut doesnt work. Just click somewhere else, to enable the shortcut.

    You can also change that short cut by going into System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts.

    I set my tab switching to CTRL + Arrows.

    I went to Keyboard shortcuts but cant find the Tab Switching heading to change. Is it listed as something else?

    I also want to change ^+fn+F4 to Command+Tab but it won't take it for some reason, am I doing something wrong?

    Guys, I just tried this with my cursor in a search field on a MR page, and Ctrl-Tab works fine (not Cmd-Tab) in Firefox.

    What browsers are you trying this in?

    I'm guessing you are using Safari? If you happen to be using Firefox, you can Cmd + the number of the tab. Using Firefox, I have had some problems not being able to switch tabs using the arrow keys on certain sites as well, but the cmd-# deal always works.
