Keepass hot key does not work with Firefox (18.0.1) but seems to work with Chrome

New user of Keepass but not or Firefox. Keepass works correctly except seems to not get the hot key. I have tried an alternate hot key but still no result. Autotype is fine. Another user who runs both Chrome and Firefox and is a long time Keepass user tried it as well. Did not work on Firefox.

Have you tried contacting Keepass to see if their plugin requires updating?

I have solved the problem by installing the "Hostname in titlebar" extension to Firefox and carefully editing the string which KeePass uses to match the title in the window. Based on the fact that the hot key now works, I conclude that it was a KeePass configuration problem. Initially I thought KeePass might not be seeing the hot key.
