PAPERCUT: A common OS X [Cmd+W] shortcut is not working.

Description

ISSUE:
A common shortcut on Mac [Cmd+W] is used to close windows. this shortcut can be used to close any window that has "close", "minimize", "maximize" buttons in the menubar.

For example, usually windows such as "About" and "Preferences" can be closed using [Cmd+W]. In FileZilla, this shortcut does not respond when a user wants to close "About" or "Preferences" windows although those windows display working close button in menubar.

SUGGESTION:
FileZilla windows such as (unfinished listing):
"About", "Preferences", "site manager", "Manual transfer", "Manage bookmarks", "Network configuration wizard" should respond to [Cmd+W] shortcut.

TO BE DONE:
Revise the need for "close", "minimize", "maximize" buttons on panels and windows and enable the shortcut functionality accordingly.

Assuming a dialog has both an OK and a Cancel button, what would Cmd+W be equivalent to?

Hi codesquid,
Currently, mentioned dialog boxes have a working X (window close) icon in title bar, and Cmd+W shortcut should be equivalent to clicking that X icon, i.e. "Cancel".

But...

I did not check the facts properly before submitting this papercut! I was not aware of the following: Windows and many linux GUIs (almost?) always have X button in the title-bar. In those cases, X is equivalent to pressing "Cancel". Apple OSX on the other hand, when a dialog box has "OK" and "Cancel" buttons, usually does not have any buttons in the title bar and does not react to Cmd+W shortcut.

Therefore on OSX: dialog boxes that have "OK" and "Cancel" buttons should not have any buttons in title bar. If this is not possible (due to WxWidgets?) and a functioning X button must be there, then Cmd+W shortcut should be equivalent to pressing that X button.

I hope I did not make this more confusing :)
