Description

We should document the new tab feature. It will fit well into the existing documentation - I can imagine a new subheading would be nice. There  are also a few new shortcuts.

Giacomo, if you  want to take this - just go ahead. I won't have the time for some days... If the patch in bug 105885 goes into the branch we'll need this on branch as well.

I still have to see the feature in action. IS there any place I can look to for inspiration? :)

Well, bug 105885 was fixed 2005-12-05, so you could grab a nightly build :)

Lame rip-off of FX help, including shortcuts. A Mac-head will need to verify them. No changes to rdf files seems needed.

We don't display the arrow on mac Classic...

As for the changes in extensions/help/resources/locale/en-US/shortcuts-navigator.xhtml,  mac uses "Cmd" instead of "Ctrl".

I'll comment more in a while, so no need to attach anything new yet :)

Actually, you'll have to change that - just look in the contents pane ;)

Hmm, since we don't display any arrow in mac classic and it seems to me that the arrow is a bit mis-placed in Modern (at least on mac) - it appears once between the "from" tab and the adjoining tab, ie it doesn't follow the movement as I would expect from the text - I suggest just leaving out that part. Since we're actually doing this with css in the  themes, I can imagine that there might be third-party themes that doesn't diplay any arrow. Anyway, I'll leave the decision to Ian.

Just replace "Ctrl" with "Cmd" for mac and you'll be fine.

Yes, you will have to add an entry under Tabbed Browsing in Customizing SeaMonkey. Also something needs to go into index under Tabbed Browsing. Possibly a few other places to look at too.

Are there any other places that display things differently under different themes and are mentioned in help?

I can't think of any, but I haven't really looked for it. Note that on mac classic we don't display anything.

Updated patch.

Is it worth mentioning the keyboard shortcuts don't work when a text box has focus?

There might be some last-minute changes of the shortcuts, but I suppose that could go in bug 320161... :/
