    I'm unable to use any sort of keyboard shortcut to close a tab in a window in safari. I used to use "apple w" all the time, but suddenly the option has disappeared. I've gone into settings and tried to switch it that way, but it still wont work. I do have the ability to close a window and even change the command for closing a window in settings, but for some reason closing a tab wont work...

    any ideas?

    Sounds like a Permission or PList problem. Repair Permissions in Disk Utility then restart the computer and see if that fixes it.
