A user reported to me, and I confirmed, that Alt+Left and Alt+Right were activing this button. When I removed accesskey="", Alt+Left activated the browser back button as intended. Not too major, but the button in question was a "Delete" button, and so by trying to go "back", the user was deleting data. :( Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Actual Results: Alt+Left and Alt+Right were activing a button with Accesskey="" Expected Results: accesskey="" should be equivalent to having no hotkey assigned.
Ginn or Gilbert, can you look at this when you get a chance?

FYI - I repeated the same bug on a different computer, running a different website, and also running FireFox 1.0. Just added accesskey="" to an <input type="submit"> tag, and pressed Alt+Left.
Ray, can you reproduce this problem with a recent nightly build (from the trunk)?
I've only tried on the official download from mozilla.org. I'm not even sure where to find a nightly build... I can download it and install over the version I have, as long as it won't kill anything else?
You can get nightly builds here:ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ Always uninstall your old build before installing new one. Your bookmarks, settings etc are saved elsewhere.
(It's not for normal usage, expect many things to be broken ;) )
I don't have a test machine where I can install it, and I need it working normally to get other work done. I have a workaround for this one issue, suppressing the [accesskey=""], so I'll leave it to you to test in the current build... Thanks for your help.
I can reproduce it with Mozilla 1.7, but not the nightly build.
