Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I Doesn't seem to work in Windows 10.

I have ensured I can remotely debug and debug chrome interfaces etc.
Component: Keyboard Navigation → Developer Tools
Same here, on Windows 10 too.

Let's ask Brian who might know better, but I wasn't able to find other instances of accel and alt being used together on Windows in the Firefox source code, so I'm wondering if it even works at all.

Hmm, it appears to work for me on Windows 10.  I tried both a local build and released Nightly.

Is it anything to do with locales?  Are either of you using localized Nightly builds?

I tested with DevEdition in French, Nightly in English and a local build of m-c but the shortcut didn't work in any of them.

I was using en-GB locale and it still isn't working here.

Does the Browser Console shortcut work (Ctrl+Shift+J)? And if so, do you see the input field at the bottom of the console?

This works correctly yes also the normal inspector works fine too. I notice that when a text field is selected that I get "Í" character inserted with the Ctrl+Shift+Alt+i but even explicitly focusing on a non text field still doesn't fix it.

This text field selection is the experience I have had previously with using other text input shortcuts when using with web extensions, they would work when the URL bar isn't selected or other fields. So I'm guessing it's not related to this.

Patrick, do you see the same behavior with "Í" being entered when using the shortcut with a text field selected?
Flags: needinfo?(bgrinstead) → needinfo?(pbrosset)
Maybe it depends on what order the modifiers are pressed in... but hopefully not!

Yes

I tried all combinations, no luck.

Moving to the backlog (P3).

This seems to be working for me just fine.
Tested on Win10 and Mac
