Build ID: 2000062408 Someone else also saw this on Linux. Highlight (put the mouse over) an item in a menu, and press the up arrow. Nothing happens.
Linux, build ID 2000062408 Down arrow works fine, up arrow does nothing.

reopening...sairuh saw it xp, peter saw it in 6/24 linux, I still see it in 62608 win98, someone on IRC just saw it with 62508 win2k, doron sees it with today's win32 build [win98], and asa sees it in today's win32 and mac builds. [looks like you're in the minority here pink :p ]

I talked to hyatt, and the suggestion is this: add a flag to nsBoxFrame::GetInsertionPoint() which makes it recursive and repeatedly drills down to get the insertion point of the returned child until it doesn't find one. once this is done, nsMenuBar and nsMenuPopupFrame need to pass PR_TRUE for this param. The new menus have a insetion point deeper than they used to (now that it's in xbl). Why did I push this to you? Well, this requires adding a method to nsIBox and touching about 15 files. You break it, you buy it ;)

Summary: Up arrow not working in menus → Up arrow not working in menus; down arrow no longer working as expected
Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar for beta2 fix.
Sorry, removing [nsbeta2+], replacing with [nsbeta2-] (keyboard functionality does not seem to be a beta2 blocker), adding nsbeta3 keyword.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2+] → [nsbeta2-]

adding alec to cc list
I know people are going to hate me for this, but I'd like one reevaluation because menus are used ALL over the product, and this is just embarassing. Netscape WILL get slammed in the press for this one. How are people going to take us seriously if we can't get menus right? This is more than just up/down arrows not working - ALL keyboard accelerators on ALL menus are broken. (removing nsbeta2- for a reevaluation)
The accelerator key issue is bug 44270
blake just brought it to my attention that bug 44270 is the accelerator key bug. Copying my rant to that bug, and returning the nsbeta2- status.
I have no idea.
