GTK+ menu items show their sub-menu when selected trough keyboard, there's a 1 sec. of delay, I think. XUL menus should follow this behavior to be consistent.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to navigate to a menu item that has a submenu only with the keyboard (don't press the right arrow when you are in the item)
Actual Results:  
The sub-menu does not appear.

Expected Results:  
The sub-menu should appear, like in GTK+ applications.

I can confirm the following behaviour for Tbird 2.0.0.12 on Ubuntu in KDE with the Qt-GTK engine:

When navigating the menus with the keyboard, selecting a menu item does not open it's sub menu. The right arrow key must be pressed to open the sub menu. I add that this is consistent with other applications on the same machine, such as OpenOfice,  Firefox, and all KDE applications.

@Andres:
Do not bump or otherwise add "please confirm" to bugzilla. When someone gets to it, they will get to it. You might have to wait a few weeks (or months, or even years in some cases) but bumping a bug puts it further behind in the queue. Be patient, this is not myspace. That said, please continue filing the bugs that you do find. Thanks!
