your post is quite shy in giving details what you are actually talking
about... ;-)

I don't know what QF is, but the CTRL-Q of Windows/Linux is usually
mapped to CMD-Q on Mac (and does close eg. the SeaMonkey app there).
CTRL-Q, OTOH, should work on Mac (and I doubt it's been taken alreday,
but I'm not near my Mac currently).

The usual way to detect a Mac in SeaMonkey is something like

if (/Mac/.test(navigator.platform))
	// do Mac-specific stuff

Even in the aviary world, install.js is still there for those who need
it. It's just not hooked up to the Extension Manager...
