3-pane, Alt+E fails to open the Edit menu
Build 2000011212M13: Linux 6.0 Overview: In the 3-pane window the Edit menu has the "E" underlined. Type Alt+E and nothing happens. Expected Results: I would expect the Edit menu to appear. Typing Alt+F pulls down the File menu. Additional Information: NT4: Alt+E opens the Edit menu.
Assigning to putterman. Please reassign if incorrect.

Akkana, hyatt, any ideas? I didn't touch any of this...
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Target Milestone: M14
Alt+mnemonic hasn't worked on linux in a long time -- I thought Hyatt turned it off, I think because of conflicts with the xbl handlers. Alt calls up XBL/XUL shortcuts, but there's no menu navigation character because most Unix people don't want one (there's never been a standard menu nav character on Unix, and we didn't have any in 4.x). The solution to this would be to make the menu access key, as well as the xul/xbl key, user specifiable, which I think is on hyatt's list; then users or skin writers who want a particular menu access key can define one.
Move to M15
No plans to fix this before ship. german agreed that the feature could simply be killed on Linux.
