Esc key does not dismiss the dialog
In dialog (e.g. Open Web Location), using Esc key does not dismiss the dialog. This is also accessibility issue. No way to dismiss the dialog using keyboard only.
Assign it to don to take a look.
dialogs. danm, can you look at this?
Event handling. Ironically, and it is a little bit that, this is working on this morning's NT build, but not on any other platform. I haven't done a complete, multi-platform analysis of this problem, but I do know that the reason it no longer works on unix is because unix/platformDialogOverlay.xul, rev 1.6, changed the id of the dialog keyset from "keyset" to "unixdialogkeyset". If you really want to do that, you should also teach the corresponding C code to look for both IDs. Dialog default keys become operational if you change it back to "keyset". Assigning to the person who made that change for further consideration.
In fact, I was just asking someone about that this morning, wondering whether in the new re-re-redesigned key bindings world it should be changed to "keyset" to match the windows version of that file. I'll make the change, assuming I can get permission to check this in.

Quoting from bug 17569 "Pressing <ENTER> key in Dialogues should equate to OK button": >----- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 1999-12-22 16:43 ----- >Hangas asked for key behavior in dialog bugs to be sent his way... But... the Status Whiteboard for that bug says "[PDT-]RN may be fixed with other dialog fixes" - and it seems that it might be. Adding Hangas to the Cc: list. It would be nice if this bug and that one could be fixed and verified together... they really do make a set in users' expectations. Confirmed that ESC is dismissing all dialogs on the File Menu on NT with 1999-12-23-08-M13.
