           Summary: F5 and Ctrl-F cannot be suppressed with preventDefault
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ivan at ivanpeters.com

event.preventDefault() appears to have no effect on F5 (refresh) and crtl-f
(find) keys. For example, the following code will suppress all keyboard events
except F5 and ctrl-f:

function cancelEvent(e) {

document.addEventListener("keydown", cancelEvent);
document.addEventListener("keypress", cancelEvent);
document.addEventListener("keyup", cancelEvent);


This is a Windows-only issue. Obviously, the OS X version doesn't have F5 for
refresh, but the above code will suppress command-R and command-F (and
everything else I tried).
