Description

Using apprunner, pressing Alt-F and then O toggles back and forth between Open
and Offline. This suggests that there are duplicate keyboard accelerators
present for Open and Offline. I believe the O should be for Open. Offline should
be L.

I don't think anything with regards to keyboard accelerators has been officially
implmenented yet - Chris?
From a UE perspective we will assign the 'well known' keyboard shortcuts and
menmonics like Ctrl-O and Alt-F-O first, and then - at the very end - will
decide on what the shortcuts
and mnemonics for the remaining items will be - that is once we have final
decisions on what goes into the menus. Our preference would be to leave the 4.5
ones, if and when they fit into the overall scheme. We may also have a way to
configure your own. I am tossing this back to Chris - and he can throw it back
to me, once the mnmemonic and cmd-keys are implemented.

Offline never had a keyboard accelerator before, and L was Forward, or Open
Location on the Mac. Is offline even in the 5.0 product?

Offline currently uses L as its accelerator in Communicator 4.51 on Windows.

The March 25 build of apprunner/seamonkey does indeed have an Offline menu
(which contains a submenu of two items).

I think you are confusing accelerators (aka shortcut keys) with access keys (aka
mnemonics). In 4.5, Ctrl+L was the accelerator for Forward; L was the mnemonic
for Offline; Cmd-L was the Command Key for Open Location on the Mac (which has no
notion of mnemonics). Also, a menu item in a development build is not equivalent
to a feature being in the product.
