1. Open Theme manager.
2. Press the context-menu key on the keyboard (next to the right Ctrl key), or
press Shift+F10.

Result: Nothing happens.
Expected: Bring up a context menu, as if I had right-clicked the selected theme.

This bug has the access keyword because the commands on this context menu,
"Visit Home Page" and "About foo...", are completely inaccessible from the keyboard.
also occurs in the Extension mgr, so updating summary (Jesse, let me know if
you'd prefer a separate bug, though).

also an issue on Linux (tested on fedora core 2) and Mac OS X 10.3.4 (where the
shortcut would be Control+Spacebar).

taking QA and nominating for 1.0. but I'd imagine this would be a non-trivial
fix, right?

Theme and Extension manager share a lot of frontend code, so I imagine the same
patch will fix both.

I don't know how hard this will be to fix.

shift+f10 works not same as right click in most scenerios( such as on an URL ).
or should it?

Shift+F10 should work the same as right click, but the target is the focus
intead of what's under the mouse pointer.

what i meaned is that in most scenerios, current implementation makes
context-menu key and shift+F10 works different from right click. an example is
that when mouse on a url link.
so i think much more work need to be done if we want context-menu key and
shift+F10 works same with right click

Fixes this bug by moving the context menu from the individual extension items
to the list view.  Also makes some more things in the Themes/Extensions windows
focusable, fixing bug 251099, bug 251101, and bug 251102.

Err, I lied.  The patch doesn't fix bug 251101.

Can this be patched so that the extension currently selected shows better focus?
 With this patch it looks the same whether or not it has focus.

This patch is now outdated, Ben reworked the window.
The context menu key still does not work, and "Get More ..." doesn't take focus,
but the Uninstall/Update/Options will take focus.

See bug 257677 for some more info.
not a mac bug, removing blocking-aviary1.0mac? flag.

Updated patch

looks fine to me, but I'd want some input from ben as to why he made the focus
setting "ignore" explicitly.

Ben already removed the corresponding "-moz-user-focus: ignore" lines for
Winstripe.  The patch removes the ones he missed in Qute and Pinstripe.
