Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041026 Firefox/1.0RC1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041026 Firefox/1.0RC1

Firefox does not use the default Windows Display setting to "Hide underlined
letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt key", which has the effect
of hiding underlines for keyboard navigation shorcuts in the menu bar of all
applications.   The setting is located under Control Panel > Display >
Appearance > Effects (See attachment).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check "Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I press the Alt
key" setting located under Control Panel > Display > Appearance > Effects.
2. Launch Firefox.
3. Launch any other application (e.g. IE)
4. Press and hold Alt.
Actual Results:  
Menu keyboard navigation shortcuts appear underlined whether Alt is depressed or
not.

Expected Results:  
Menu keyboard navigation shortcuts should appear underlined only when Alt is
depressed when the "Hide underlined letters for keyboard navigation until I
press the Alt key" Windows display setting is enabled.
