A nice addition would be to have an Alt-P shortcut to open the "Preferences" dialog (Currently under "Edit > Preferences").

Reproducible: Always
Alt key is intended to use in combination with accesskeys. This can cause conflicts in many localizations. For example sk localization uses alt+p for opening Help menu.

Oh, ok. I suggested it because I'm used to it in Opera and when I hit Alt-P in Seamonkey I found it strange that nothing happened. I wonder why Opera has it if it causes conflicts with Eastern Europe languages.

Against "Edit -> Preferences", I see Alt-O in the menu (maybe related to the fact that under Windows it's Tools -> Options). However, if I hit Alt-O, what I get is the "older" prefs popup, the same as with "Edit -> (Legacy Prefwindow)". I don't know if it comes from plain-vanilla SeaMonkey or from one of my extensions.
oops, I meant: Firefox for Windows it's Tools -> Options...
