Build 2000-02-14-16M14: NT4 I am reporting this bug on Mail/Composer because Alt+letter keys in other components do work such as the Editor and the Address Book. Overview: Access the Mail/Composer top level menu by using the Alt+letter sequence (i.e. Alt+F for the File menu to appear), instead a dialog appears or nothing happens. Steps to reproduce: 1. In the 3-pane select the "New Msg" button for Composer to appear 2. Place the cursor on any section of the Composer window 3. Type "Alt+F", (disable the dialog if one appears) 4. Type "Alt+I", (disable the dialog if one appears) 5. Type "Alt+O" Actual Results: - After step#3 notice an "Enter file to attach" dialog appears. I also noticed that the File|Attach (F)ile mnemonic is an "F". Since the top level "File" and "Attach File" are using the same mnemonic, maybe this is causing a conflict? - After step#4 notice that an "Image Properties" dialog appears. I also noticed that the "Insert|(I)mage..." mnemonic is an "I". Again, the top level "Insert" and "Image" are using the same mnemonic. - After Step# 5 notice that nothing happens. It should open the Format menu. Expected Results: - Alt+F should open the File menu - Alt+I should open the Insert menu - Alt+O should open the Format menu Additional Information: - Alt+E opens the Edit menu as expected.
Putting on PDT+ radar for beta1.
Menu navigation problem, reassign to trudelle.

Can't get at my PC right now, cc saari until I can reproduce this.
Not only does the dialog come up, the menus start behaving as if they had received a mousedown - they drop down on mere mouseover. reassigning to saari as p2 for M14. cc pinkerton & hyatt.
Sounds like someone defined some bad key bindings to me. Probably a bug in the mailcompose key bindings and not in XPToolkit infrastructure.
I just grepped all the xul for an alt+F binding and didn't find one. Sorry Dave, looks like your recent changes...
