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'
"Copy Link Location" should be chosen
"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.
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
