From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; N; PPC; en-US; m14) BuildID: 2000032205 The mouse cursor does not change to indicate the availability of the context menu when ctrl is held down. (Mac only) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Move the mouse cursor over a window belonging to Mozilla 2. Hold down the ctrl key Actual Results: The cursor does not change. Expected Results: Expected the mouse cursor to change (like in Finder) to indicate the availability of the context menu.
This isn't really a bug per se as I don't know whether Mozilla UI intends to support this 'feature' or not and I don't have access to other platform builds right now.

Ever confirmed: true
It is a bug, since the standard behavior on Mac OS involves a change in the cursor. This bug is not relevant to platforms where the context menu is opened by right clicking and Ctrl is used as a shortcut modifier. In fact, it would be a bug if holding down Ctrl would change the cursor on those platforms.
This is a context menu or xul keybinding issue. Trying saari, will let him reassign as necessary

Good catch. Yeah, we probably need a platform specific binding to change the cursor. Don, should you guys get this?

No. :-) Seriously, I don't quite understand what needs to be done here. (Explain it to the stupid pointy head, please.)

Basically you need a platform specific keybinding that is bound to the control key. That binding gets the current position of the mouse and figures out if there is a context menu that could be brought up there. That is the part I'm not sure how to do. But I can learn.
