From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.3.99-1smp i686) BuildID: 2000030708 accesskey attributes in html code (included in the HTML 4.0, 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 DTDs) are not supported by mozilla; the keypresses are ignored or mapped to mozilla functions. I know this can't be fixed without messing up the user interface we're accustomed to, so I'm not sure whether or not this should be fixed at all; maybe make it a configuration option, or ignore the HTML definition and map Alt+shift+key to accesskey handling? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Simple HTML to try: <html><body> <u>U</u>ser name:<input type="text" name="username" accesskey="u" /> <U>P</u>assword:<input type="password" name="pass" accesskey="p" /> </body> </html> Actual Results: Alt+u is ignored, Alt+p brings up the printer dialog Expected Results: Alt+u should/could have activated the username control, Alt+p the password control
If this is in the HTML4 spec, we should implement it some way. Changing priority, confirming. Gerv

Yup - this is legit, and looks to me like an event handling problem. Joki, please take a look.
