Install FF29 with Hebrew locale or Hebrew language pack 2. type Alt+D Actual results: Nothing happens. Expected results: The location bar should be selected.
Yaron, do you know if this shortcut is purposefully different in the Hebrew localization? Did this change recently?
Hi Gijs, I have no idea. Sorry. I've never used that shortcut.
Forgot to add: It doesn't work for me either.

I'm using FF with the hebrew pack for many years. And I've allways used the alt+d shortcut, now in FF29 I'ts dons't work. Thanks.
Reproduced on 29.0.1
I guess this is the changeset (Feb 6), unless I'm looking at the wrong entity http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-release/he/rev/f2896e31a77e#l2.288

Tomer, was this a deliberate change, or can you fix this in the hebrew translation? :-)
are there is any progress?
Alt-* keyboard shortcuts are accesskeys, and in contrast to Ctrl-* keyboard shortcuts they are not preserved between locales. You can access the Location Bar by using Ctrl-L or F6. The Alt-D keyboard shortcut is in fact an historical relic implemented to make migration with ease for Internet Explorer users, were D was standing for for the browser address bar, which is known as the location bar on other browsers jargon.

I disagree. The key might have "accesskey" in the name, but in the end is a shortcut and not exposed as a standard accesskey http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/base/content/browser-sets.inc#262

I guess that most of automation tools won't be able to warn it as such, therefore I'm suggesting renaming the key. committed changeset 601:95c0c7fb65f1
