In the Password Manager window, the buttons "Remove" and "Remove All" have underlined letters, indicating keyboard shortcuts (Alt+R and Alt+A, respectively). However, those keystrokes do nothing.
The other buttons (Show Passwords and Help) respond fine to their respective keyboard shortcuts

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Tools -> Password Manager -> Manage Stored Passwords
2. Select an entry in the list of stored passwords
3. Hit Alt+R
Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
The selected line should be removed from the list

Tested with SeaMonkey 1.1, 1.1.5 and 1.1.7 under Windows (various versions), 1.1.7 under Kubuntu Linux and 1.0.9 under Windows XP.
The 1.0.9 version works correctly, in that the buttons do not have underlined letters, so they don't make the user think that those keys do something.
Version: unspecified → SeaMonkey 1.1 Branch

Don't work, on 1.1.x branch (and "old" 1.5a Trunk).

[Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008051102 SeaMonkey/2.0a1pre] (nightly) (W2Ksp4)

Works fine, on current 2.0a1pre Trunk.
Ever confirmed: true
This is Bug 143065 which was fixed on 1.9a.

SignonViewer.xul actually has four tab panels and each has a "Remove" and a "Remove All" button. So there are four buttons with an access key of "R" and four with "A".

See Bug 143065 Comment 29 on why it might not be possible to back-port the patch to the 1.8.1 branch.
KaiRo, this is fixed in SM 2 (I checked) so I would have marked this WFM but this bug's Version is SeaMonkey 1.1 Branch. AFAIK SM 1.1 only receives security fixes, if at all, so there's not much left to do. Options:
a) mark WFM and change Version to SM 2
b) mark WONTFIX and leave Version as-is
c) whatever else you suggest.
