How do I cancel editing a cell, in Google Spreadsheets?

I sometimes double-click on a cell to see the formula or whatever, or I just accidentally start typing in the cell. How do I cancel the edits? Esc and Ctrl+Z don’t work, so I typically hit Enter and then Ctrl+Z, but that seems clunky.

EDIT: Chrome on Ubuntu


Wow, a year later I had this issue again. Finally realized that the issue was Vimium—once I disabled it on everything was fine. Seems kind of obvious, but for some reason I had figured that wasn’t it. I guess I was unconsciously assuming I had already disabled Vimium in Google Docs because everything else worked.
