AutoHotKey - Getting script to run only in certain programs

I'm running the script below in AutoHotKey

^e::
If WinActive("ahk_class MozillaUIWindowClass") Or WinActive("ahk_class MozillaWindowClass")
  Send, {Ctrldown}k{CtrlUp}
Return

It works great in Firefox to send a Control + k when I press Control + e.

The issue is when I use any other programs.  Control + e makes nothing happen. I want control + e to still work in other apps.

I tried putting in an else like this:
Else
  Send, {Ctrldown}e{CtrlUp}

...but then the script then loops and my PC gets crazy.

Any and all help is appreciated!

Thank you,

John

try:
Send, ^k

or your window title definition might not be right:
If WinActive("ahk_class MozillaUIWindowClass") Or WinActive("ahk_class MozillaWindowClass")

I tried it with notepad, and it worked fine for me.
