From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; I; SunOS 5.5.1 sun4u) BuildID: 2000061821 I press ALT-n to create a new window. It doesn't create a new window, but just enters "n" in the URL field. All accelerators are behaving the same way. Note that I am not using CDE as my window manager, but Panorama (formerly sold by SCO). I hope that is not the issue. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Bring up mozilla. 2. Put focus in URL field. 3. Hold down ALT. 4. Press "n". Actual Results: The letter "n" appears in the URL field. Expected Results: A new Mozilla window should have been created. My platform is using the Panorama window manager, not CDE. I'm also executing Mozilla on a 2.6 system, but displaying on a 2.5.1 system.
Works for me on Linux 061908 build, can you try today's build on your system? Also, if you click on the regular page part of the Moz window, does alt+n work?
we need to find a solaris user for this.
yes, we need someone with solaris to test this....

With build 2000061921, with the focus in the URL field, it still just inserts an "n" into the URL field, but doesn't create a new window. If I manually put the focus into the main page area, pressing ALT-n does nothing.
i tried it on solaris 2.7 using build 2000042619. Alt-n works for me.
Sander, can you please try again on a 6/21 nightly build?
Tried again on 6/21 build. No change. However, I also tried the same test, running it on the same workstation, but displaying on a workstation using CDE, instead of Panorama. As I feared, that test case does not fail. It correctly brings up the new window, and doesn't insert "n" into the URL field. Oddly enough, this scenario is similar to an issue I discovered quite a while ago with running Java applications on Solaris, and displaying on either CDE or Panorama. If I display them in Panorama, then accelerators have no effect. I don't remember whether the un-ALTed key would pass through to focused textfields. If I ran the same application, displaying in CDE, then accelerators work fine. Note that accelerators in other applications, like Netscape 4.7x, work fine, whether displaying in Panorama or CDE. I don't know, and I seriously wonder, whether this same symptom will occur while displaying in fvwm or KDE, on Solaris.
*spam* changing all open or resolved bugs that email@example.com was the QA contact for to firstname.lastname@example.org. szhu is no longer with netscape, and these bugs could lie dormant otherwise. sorry for spam.

Tested on Solaris2.6 with build 2000062921. Alt-n works fine. Note that my display actually is on a Linux machine where I use fvwm95-2.
This looks like a modifier problem. Can you post output of 'xmodmap' command if you are having problems. It's best to have Mod1 modifier set to the key you wish to use as Alt.

Ever confirmed: true
some gtk acclerator fixes havebeen/are going into the tree, can you try this again?
I tried this on Solaris 2.8 platform using nightly build moz: 2001041710 and see that pressing alt+n keys does not start a new browser. Not sure if this is supposed to work on windows platform. When I tried it on win NT 4.0 with nightly build : 2001041704 I saw the problem as well. ie., a new navigator window was not started when alt+n keys were pressed.
i'm confused, do you have a pref set to use alt as your modifier? if not then ctrl-n from chrome/content (but not edit boxes) should open a new window
ok, thanks, ctrl+n works both on solaris and windows nightlies, as I do not have my prefs set to alt+n..

Can anyone with Solaris please test and see if this bug still reproduces?
