Is anyone aware of a bug about the Firefox/Aurora/Nightly "button" not being keyboard accessible?

Maybe I just don't know the key combination to it.

I tried using <Alt>+<Left arrow> but that doesn't seem to work.

It is correct that the Firefox/Aurora/Nightly button is not keyboard accessible. You can use the Alt-menu to access the same features that are present in the Firefox button.

Jared,

Is that "by design" or should I file a bug about it?

It is by design. There is strong pre-existing muscle memory for the Alt-menu, especially with keyboard-only users, so there is no desire in breaking that as well as no subsequent reason with adding duplicate functionality.
