Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Opera/9.60 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) Presto/2.1.1
Build Identifier: Gecko/2008092814 Iceweasel/3.0.1

Please use accelerator key "C" for copy actions.



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Position Mouse-cursor at URL link
2. Right Click to bring up context menu
3. Menu item shows 'Copy Link Loc(a)tion'


Expected Results:  
The copy action should be in key "C" as in '(C)opy Link Location'

The context menu for URL links (Right click on URL), shows unconvenient "a" accelerator key, when -- if you select a word and Right-Click context menu -- it shows natural (C)opy accelerator key.

Please follow same UI concepts everywhere: C for copy.
There're situations when both Copy and Copy Link Location are shown in context menu, for example select a link and a few words around and then right click this link. This would cause a collision.

You could implement it like this:

1) If only '(C)opy Link Location' is whown in meny, have
   accelerator key in "C")
2) If both need to to displayed, then show the other
   choice: 'Copy Link Loc(a)tion'

It's much more common to point at URL to copy its address that have both
menus choices simultaneously shown, so please use the "C" wherever possible.
