in [url=]MoreLayoutsforThunderbird[/url], F11 is used for Fullscreen mode.  if it were any other button and any other function, i would be changing the key to avoid conflict with Lightning.  however, F11 should be used across moz products for Fullscreen.  so perhaps Lightning could use F12 (or other) to toggle the Today Pane.

I think this is more of a Lightning question, no?  They'll have to weigh the disadvantages of changing a keybinding with the advantages of being consistent with the rest of the platform.

I will say that our users seem to dislike change, so perhaps they could add an option (on-by-default) to make F11 the Today pane key…  ;)
