When typing a key with focus on a closed XUL menulist entries starting with that
key are not selected.  This is standard platform behavior on Windows to do so.

On the converse, if you open the drop down list and type a key, the first entry
is selected as expected.

See Bug 144303 for reference.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new compose email window
2. tab to the to: field. 
3. Type 'c".

Case 2: 
1. Open preferneces in the browser
2. Click on the Navigator/Internet Search tab
3. Press tab to move focus to the "Search using" drop down list
4. Press 'g'
Actual Results:  
Nothing happened.

Expected Results:  
"Cc:" in case 1 or "Google" entry in case 2 should be selected from drop down list.

This is related to a PR in mailnews.  In previous versions of netscape mail, it
was very easy to quickly change all the "cc" in an email to 'to:" or other such
manipulations.  Not you have to annoyingly click on every drop down list and
change it.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
