Disabled/grayed-out menu items still highlight when alt shortcut key is pressed and fail with no feedback
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126 If a menu item is disabled, it shouldn't be able to be highlighted when you press its shortcut key, most especially when it shares a shortcut key with another item. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open any page with a link. 2. Right-click on the link. 3. Press C to highlight "Copy Link Location". 4. Press C to highlight "Copy" (grayed out/disabled) Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: Run "Copy Link location"'s event at step 3. A work-around for this example would be to assign a different shortcut key to "Copy Link Location" or assign different (additional) shortcut keys automatically when two items have the same shortcut key. ie, &Cop&y and &Copy L&ink Location (I'm not sure how you're supposed to markup the shortcut key in text form). The best, however, would be to disable the shortcut key for disabled items.
