Description

In Leanback, pressing the Menu button in any state exits the app and loses all of your searches. This completely breaks with the UI-design of Boxee where in most places pressing Menu will dismiss the controls on the screen. I realize that Leanback has it's own look-and-feel, so I propose a compromise: add an "Are you sure you want to exit Leanback?" dialog when Menu is pressed. Could we also perhaps have a little bit of the Boxee behavior as well? If there's any type of Leanback control visible, pressing Menu will dismiss it. Pressing menu on a screen with no controls will either ask Are you sure or exit the app directly. Actually, the problem of menu always exiting usually occurs when I'm trying to dismiss the controls and forget to do the non-standard Up/Down.
