User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; he-IL; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050524 Firefox/1.0.4 (Ubuntu package 1.0.2 MFSA2005-44)

Tab selection with Alt+NUM is reversed in BiDi (Arabic/Hebrew) layouts.

Just think they should be changed to Alt+0 for 1st tab, Alt+9 for 2nd tab, and
so on.

Any other idea?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run mozilla/firefox with a bidi (i.e. he-IL) UILocal.
2. Open some tabs.
3. Use Alt+1, Alt+2, etc.

Hm, this is tricky, I think the current behavior is the better choice. That's,
Ctrl+1 selects the first tab, ctrl+2 selects the second tab etc.

Suggesting wontfix.
