However, Navigator behaves exactly the opposite way around.

Summary: keyboard shortcut for opening new tabs works differently than documented → Keyboard shortcut for opening new tabs works differently than documented
Version: unspecified → other
Actually, it's more complicated that that :) In my brief testing it appears that "Insert" opens the highlighted link accoding to the pref set in Navigator -> Tabbed Browsing (browser.tabs.loadInBackground) and "Shift + Insert" does the opposit.
-> arron actually, the page is an updated version of keyboard shortcut in Mozilla Help, so partly belongs to documentation:user arron, can you also update the shortcut table (accel+0) in Help and move the online page from docs/end-user/ to catalog/end-user/? btw, T is for "Mark this thread as read and go to next unread thread", not "Go to Next Unread Thread" and add a note that keyboard shortcut w/o modifier is case sensitive (e.g. 'T' should be 't') also, Ctrl+# depends on what components you have (e.g. if you don't have ChatZilla, Ctrl+3 opens Composer) And the page should be expanded to explain mouse shortcuts (e.g. ctrl+click on "compose/reply/reply all" button to swtich from default html/text mode.)

The bug can be found in the End-User documentation that is delivered with the Mozilla binary _and_ at the URL noted above. Sorry if that was not clear in the original bug submission.
online doc removed. -> help content component
Giacomo, does this still occurs? Since I'm on a mac I'm unable to test ;)
Comment #2 holds true. An update to the documentation is needed. Good first bug? :)
I have 3 suggestions so far to solve this issue: http://www.aquachan.de/moz/shortcuts-navigator.xhtml#tabbed_browsing_shortcuts http://www.aquachan.de/moz/shortcuts-navigator_v2.xhtml#tabbed_browsing_shortcuts http://www.aquachan.de/moz/shortcuts-navigator_v3.xhtml#tabbed_browsing_shortcuts Any opinions on what's probably the best for a normal user or what could be improved?
