One of the changes between Firefox 2 and Firefox 3 was that the hotkey for  "Copy Link Location" changed from "c" to "a".  However, in Thunderbird, it's still "c".  Thunderbird should change to match Firefox.

Steps to reproduce:
 1. View an email that includes a hyperlink
 2. Right-click the hyperlink
 3. Press 'a'

EXPECTED RESULTS:
"Copy Link Location" should be chosen

ACTUAL RESULTS:
"Select All" is chosen

Note: In Firefox 3, 'Select All' doesn't even appear in hyperlink context menus *at all*, which removes the ambiguity.  It does appear in non-hyperlink context menus, though, and 'a' maps to Select All in those menus.

Tested using Shredder version 3.0a2 (2008072418) on Ubuntu Linux 8.10a5
This is still true, and still relevant -- I actually use this feature in Firefox, and it annoys me slightly in Thunderbird.

Summary: Contexts menu for links in emails should map hotkey 'a' to "Copy Link Location", matching Firefox 3 → Contexts menu for links in emails should map access key 'a' to "Copy Link Location", matching Firefox 3
We should definitely do this, since Copy and Copy Link Location are using the same access key. To see this in action, select some text (any text) and then right-click on a link.

"a" is already used for "Select All". L seems to be free though
