I switch between Linux and Windows (and sometimes OSX) on a regular basis. I also like to do things like mark all mail in an IMAP folder as "read". On Linux, that keyboard shortcut is "Control-C", but on Windows it's "Control-Shift-C". I'd like to request that we make them the same. This is probably a religious issue so I'll put on my flame retardant suit now... :-)
Not so much religion. Basically due to bug 269228 I think, but that shouldn't be an issue anymore <http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/mailnews/base/resources/content/unix/platformMailnewsOverlay.xul#17>
Anyone have an update on this one?
I'll take this.
Created attachment 335171 [details] [diff] [review] proposed fix For thunderbird, just need to revert bug 239483. SeaMonkey seem to have a different approach, through bug 250005. Since it was only a workaround in the first place and GTK2.9-> has changed to only reserve ctrl-shift-u (according to bug 311756 comment 35), we can now just switch to use the same shortcut on all platforms.

Magnus, I'm so sorry to do this to you, but I just switched to the Mac and realized that the keyboard shortcuts for the Mac are still the three-character chord (shift-command-c) rather than just command-c. Is it possible (and "correct" on the Mac) to make this change also?
Er, the fix was to remove the linux specific shift-c since it was added just of technical necessity. Now all three platforms use the Ctrl+Shift+C (or Cmd+Shift+C) combo.
Well, consistency is good. I don't really care all that much. Go ahead and close it out and work on something more important. ;-)
It's good to read that this is fixed in Seamonkey2, I never understood why this had to do, I never had problems with the Ctrl-Shift-C in first place, I even patched Seamonkey back to use the right key combination, the development team should have been pushing more on the gtk2/gnome2 bunch to fix the problem as it was where it was or done something I hade liked even more switched to QT instead, sad that the trolltech guy's didn't continue to do their work, it's always nicer when application matches the desktop environment, just don't like when buttons on popup windows are wrongly placed.
