Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click anywhere on a page to unselect the location bar. 2. Turn Caps Lock on. 3. Press Alt+D (location bar hotkey). Actual Results: Location bar is not selected. System plays default error sound. Expected Results: Location bar should be selected with Alt+D even with Caps Lock on. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158679 states that shortcut keys for viewing mail messages do not work if Caps Lock is on. These are probably related, and there may be other cases of this in the suite as well. Based on that bug, this one is probably all operating systems also.
bug 184050 and bug 211888 are both duped against bug 178110. They all described the same problem. Bug 178110 (the original one) was resolved fixed, but I don't think it's fixed any more. But I'm a little reluctant to reopen that bug, because they bugs seem to have different understandings of the problem :-)
This looks like Bug 178110 indeed, I see the same behaviour using: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040505 Firefox/0.8.0+
Marking as NEW based on comments. Reproducable with latest nightly on w2k as well.

Why does it work in Seamonkey but not in Firefox?

Hmm... the mailnews navigation keys don't work with CapsLock either.
