Because it looks strange (picture).

In german the accesskey is "g".
What do you think?

Robert, what do you think about a change to "W"? "W" is used as access key for adding a dictionary if there is none installed but displaying that menu item is broken at the moment (bug 1349745) and it should only be shown in an editable mode (editable and video playback is rare at the moment).

That sounds reasonable.

In general, access keys on characters reaching under the baseline, that are very narrow, or on Umlauts sound be avoided, but can be accepted when there are no better options available. The dictionary one will need a different access key or an agreement that we can safely ignore the case where both appear and the access key is doubled.
