Fixes #6357.

Code changes

This changes the keyboard shortcut for the 'Close Tab' command to 'Alt+W' from 'Accel+W'. On Windows and MacOS 10.14, 'Accel+W' closes the whole browser tab for several browsers. Per the discussion in #6357 , the 'Alt+W' shortcut looks like it is available and will not conflict with any browser shortcuts.

Looks like unrelated async test failures. I restarted the failed tests.
