What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Enable Firebug when using Firefox 2
2. Command Tilde no longer switches between Firefox windows.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
On Macs, Command-Tilde cycles through the current application's windows.  

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Mac OS 10.4.10
Firebug 0.4

Please provide any additional information below.
This problem didn't occur when I used Firefox 1.5 and previous. 
I originally noticed the problem when I updated to Firefox 2.
I isolated that it was a Firebug problem by disabling all of my extensions,
and enabling them one at a time until the command-tilde-switching stopped

Works with fbug 1.2.0b* and Firefox 3.0.1. Mac OS X 10.5.

1.4X.0a20 and 1.4X.0a21 on Firefox 3.1b3 are giving me this same problem. :(

I don't recall encountering this with older 1.4 alphas (or earlier versions).

Maybe the first time thing is related to Curtis' movement of stuff from
browserOverlay.xul to firebugOverlay.xul?

It looks like 'shift + command + `' does work for me.
Comment 11 by Hans.Hillen, Apr 28, 2009
Ignore my earlier comment (which I just deleted), I thought we were talking about
Issue 1686:"Several keyboard shortcuts do not work (FF 3.1b3, FB 1.4a20)". 

This might be related to my keybinding changes, I'll have a closer look at this one.

This is happening for me on 1.4X.0a22, Firefox 3.5b4, Mac OS X 10.5.6. But only since
I upgraded last upgraded Firefox.

Same here. Running 1.4.x.0a23; Firefox 3.5b4; OS X 10.5.6

"Command + Shift + `" works too, but I'd love it back to where it was.

This one was driving me batty. I had been using Firebug a17, IIRC, and it was fine.
Upgrading to a22 broke it. cmd-shift-` works, which is a nice workaround for now, but
cmd-` is much more wired into my fingers.
