Build Identifier: 2.0.0.7

To modify size of the text, you can use ctrl++ or ctrl+-
With a standard keyboard (azerty) it works with the '+' of the numeric pad or the '+' above the '='
But it doesn't work with the '-' below the '6', whereas it works with the '-' of the numeric pad.
What about using this keyboard shortcut with a portable computer ?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.on a web page try to modify size of the text
2.try using ctrl++ or ctrl+- with the numeric pad and the others keys '+' and '-'
3.
Actual Results:  
it doesn't work if i want to reduce the character size with the key '-' below the '6'

Having the same keyboard shortcuts on all different keyboard layouts is a nightmare. Each vendor often rearranges the keys, and the driver isn't necessarily reporting the key that is printed on it (when pressed with a modifier).

The workaround is to use a numeric keypad (which stay the same), but a laptop doesn't have that.

Can you test if it works on the same keys where the QWERTY shortcuts can be found, that is, the 2 keys on the right of the 0 ? Your plus is already there (probably, at least on a French Azerty, but not on a Belgian one), the minus might be on the left on that.

Hi, thanks for your answer.

I'm french and use an AZERTY keyboard.

When I switch to QWERTY (shift+Alt) it works with the corrsponding "-" key

My keyboard in AZERTY/QWERTY :

AZERTY : 
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 ° +
² & é " ' ( - è _ ç à ) =

QWERTY :
~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ +
` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =


I just observe in AZERTY the shorcut Ctrl+- doesn't work (with any key, except the numeric keypad)

The patch of bug 359638 was landed, so this bug should be fixed.
However, I think the tab switching of Accel+Numeric keys are broken by the patch.
