Some months ago, the shortcut Alt+Del for archiving messages on Facebook stopped working. From what I can see in this help file (the Norwegian version), the shortcut is currently supposed to be Ctrl+Del—that does not work either.

Is there a workaround for this? I'm using my Facebook messages actively as an inbox, and this shortcut used to save me a lot of time.
