This means GWT event service will be stopped.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open editor in Firefox
2. Open firebug console and turn on All logging
3. Locate the XHR entry of event service, it should be something like http://localhost:9898/zanata/webtrans/gwteventservice with as whirly thingy at the end.
4. Press ESC
the event service connection gets closed (the entry found in step 3 turns red)
event service connection should not be closed by ESC key press.
This is a Firefox bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=614304
But they are still arguing whether or not they will stop this key binding. We will need to workaround it before they fix it.
VERIFIED with Zanata version 3.2-SNAPSHOT (20131112-0036)
