Pressing return key when editing a question text field reloads the page.

When I am editing a question, and I have either the Title, Tags or Update Summary field (i.e., any non-WYSIWYG text field) focused and I press the return key, instead of submitting the edit, the page reloads, and I lose my edits.

Problem occurs in Firefox on Mac OS. Chrome seems to work OK.

I've just tried editing your question and when I hit enter after changing a field - the question posts with the new content (I've edited just a revision comment).

Probably better disable the "on enter key" effect altogether? Just make the fields insensitive to the enter key?

Which browser/OS are you using?
