I select an attachment to save locally and get a dialog prompting me to choose 
between opening it and saving it to disk.  I choose Save it to disk and then 
press return/enter keys.  Nothing happens.  Then I press escape key.  Nothing 
happens.  I expect these shortcut keys to work in all dialogs (esp. if the return 
icon (left-pointing arrow) is present).

This is not mail/news. This belongs to whoever owns nsIFileSpec and the 
ChooseOutputFile() method off of that.

nsIFileSpec is a depricated API, which does not contain the method

Is this just a problem with attachments, or are other file open/save dialogs
affected?  Is this really Mac-specific?

sorry; I'm about to go on my sabbatical.  I don't know if this is platform-
specific or not.

My complaint isn't about the MacOS save/open dialogs, it's about the (mime?) 
dialog I get before I am prompted to save (you click the radio buttons to either 
open or save the file...)

cc Charley since he also has a bug like this (though in a Composer dialog).

This works in other dialogs, so should be an apps issue, not toolkit. Does
anyone know who owns that dialog?   reassigning to selmer, since it is

Is this a dup of 34051?

Comment 13

No, this can't be bug 34051, as that is about FileSpec interfaces. This is
about a modal dialog, specifically 

I see that this pulls in dialogOverlay.xul, which should give it keybindings
for the OK and Cancel buttons, and a binding for ESC, but this doesn't seem
to be working. I also tried another dialog (askSendFormat.xul?) which also
doesn't work for these keyboard shortcuts. 

This needs a further look to figure out why this is failing (apps not set up
correctly, or some binding/focus issue). [tested on win2k].
