Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007101304 Minefield/3.0a9pre

steps
1. tools>options
2. in each tab click all buttons that have ellipsis and look for Cancel/Close/OK.

Certificate Manager: OK (no access key, escape closes)
Manage CRLs: Close (no access key, escape closes)
Device Manager: OK (no access key, escape closes)
Don't Remember Passwords: Close (no access key, escape closes)
Remember Passwords: Close (no access key, escape closes)
Cookies: Close (access key "C", escape is ignored outside search field, in search field it triggers clear button)
Exceptions - Images: Close (access key "C", escape is ignored)

I know that some of these windows are sizable and some aren't, but I think the behaviors here are strange. If I want to close a window, I can always use alt-f4, so I see no reason to offer alt-L.

I am still unable to close the Security -> Saved passwords window using the ESC key.

Wasn't that also expected?
