It should be possible to use the access keys to directly select a specific item from the list of menu items inside the subview that's currently active.

In other words: when an item contains the attribute 'accesskey', it'll work exactly the same as its usage in other (sub-)menus. This also means that the keyboard navigation in bookmark folder sub-menus should also be supported.

Please take IME input modes into account.
Note: explicitly defined accesskeys usually impact the appearance of menu item labels, displaying the character as underlined.

This is more like a feedback request, because it at least needs tests. Just curious to know what you think of this approach.
Hmm, looks like my patches here do what I describe in bug 1354146. I think I should've posted the patches in that bug instead. :/
