Please report any other irregularities here.
There are several outstanding issues with Thinkpad keyboards and Mozilla: "Favorites" should open the bookmarks sidebar, but does nothing in Mozilla. "Stop" should stop loading, but does nothing in Mozilla. Page Back (left of up arrow) does nothing, should go "back" Page Forward (right of up arrow) does nothing, should go "Forward" Mail, and Homepage seem to work fine (when setup for Mozilla as the default browser). Perhaps documentation should be included? Seach opens up the Windows Search (for files and stuff) Refresh works, but has a little issue with Mail&News (Bug 225844).
Mike, anyone in your group have a machine with these keys?

Is it a dup of bug 230717? Does the Microsoft internet kbd work the same way?
Should note, the laptop I have is a Thinkpad A31 (2652).
this bug is also present in Linux here is a webpage which explains how to fix this bug for Firefox in Linux. http://snarfed.org/space/thinkpad+keys+in+firefox
This bug has been fixed on Windows platform. However it is still present in Linux. Can somebody change the OS field from Windows 2000 -> Linux
This bug has been fixed in Firefox 3. Please close this bug.
(In reply to comment #7) > This bug has been fixed in Firefox 3. Please close this bug. Really? When I push the page back/forward buttons (left/right of up arrow), nothing happens. Would be nice if we supported these. http://thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_get_special_keys_to_work#Firefox says: VK_F19 --> back VK_F20 --> forward Ventron, where's the best place to support this for both Windows and Linux?
I already fixed this for Linux. Its just that now we listen for the proper standard X11 keycodes (like XF86_Back et al). Because we didn't support this beforehand and we're the most widely distributed browser on Linux, there was no incentive for distro owners to fix detection and autoconfiguration of internet keys. If you configure your keys to send those keycodes it should work.
