User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032619 Firefox/3.0b5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032619 Firefox/3.0b5

When prompted to accept/deny cookies, Accept is the default (selected by Enter/Return). There should be a way to set Deny to the default.

Clicking DENY w/ the mouse has a different (better, more restrictive) behavior than hitting ESC. ESC should be = DENY, and SPACE could also be used for something.

Please allow me to easily DENY all cookies from a site without using Mouse.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
ESC appears to deny the cookie this one time only. Space is not used. Some keyboard shortcut should equal a DENY mouse click.

Does Ctrl+D work for you?  It seems to work for me.

It does! Thank you for the solution. It would still be nice to have a pref (obvious or about:config) that defaults to Deny, but this is sufficient for me.

Should I change status to WORKSFORME?

Meh, I think we're going to remove the "ask every time" feature anyway, in favor of making the "Remove cookies when: I exit Firefox" experience more pleasant (e.g. by making it easier to specify that certain sites' cookies should persist).
