File->Send Now does not have a shortcut on MacOS X, unlike it has on Linux.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

This is really something which is needed. Dunno why we missed that bug for so many years. :/

Is there any chance to get this into Thunderbird 3?

Neil said that it could be a widget issue on OS X? Josh do you know some limitations? I'll attach a screenshot of VmWare which uses a similar shortcut.
Summary: "Send Now" does not have a shortcut on MacOS X → "Send Now" and "Send later" does not have a shortcut on OS X
It's not an OS X issue, but a XUL-on-OS X issue, or possibly a showing-control-characters-in-XUL-menus-cross-platform issue.  I did some experiments which made me feel that showing Enter/Return/Arrows in XUL just doesn't work.  Don't know what Toolkit bug this is dependent on.

Steven do you know something on that side?

No.

But it might help for David to give more a more detailed description of the experiments he did.

If you provide a testcase XUL file which exhibits this bug, we can push this bug to Widget: Cocoa.
According to comments 6 to 10, this is actually the same as bug 294437, mark as dupe?

would it be fair to say that patch in bug 294437 won't get into 1.9.1/TB3?

cmd + return/enter - send
cmd + shift + return/enter - send later

Perhaps this should be closed?
It seems to be the control characters not displaying that are actually the fault. That's bug 294437.
