[Broken out of 9157, to avoid annoying developers by re-opening bugs that really are fixed. ;-] Just as Win32/Linux users might expect the Escape key to dismiss a dialog, Macintosh users expect similar behavior from Command-period. (On Mac OS, Command-period should dismiss a contextual menu, or select "Cancel" in a dialog box.)

Actually, MacOS HIG says it is a keyboard equivalent for <Esc>, but MacOS Help says it will cancel the current operation. I doubt more than 1% of Mac users know about this. ->future.

Pfft... Peter, can you identify a single Mac OS system dialog (or dialog from a highly regarded Mac application) which doesn't honor the Command-. behavior to dismiss a dialog box? It's the attention to little consistency details like this which is key to making a Macintosh application that the community will adopt. But, y'know what, that's okay. It seems to me that engineering/marketing management is choosing to take a path that will never lead Netscape 6 to more than negligible adoption on the Mac, so it's clearly not worth my time to argue about decisions like this anymore. Love, Eli

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies there as well or resolve this bug.

In OS X 10.3.3, using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; de-AT; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040514, dismissing dialogs like passwort dialogs, "URL not found" dialogs etc. works using Cmd+period.
