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).
we should fix this for rtm/nsbeta3
This is not mail/news. This belongs to whoever owns nsIFileSpec and the ChooseOutputFile() method off of that. - rhp
finding right owner...
Wrong. nsIFileSpec is a depricated API, which does not contain the method ChooseOutputFile, which is defined, not in any IDL, but in widget/src/xpwidgets/nsFileSpecWithUIImpl.cpp.
Reassigning to XP Toolkit/Widgets
I think this one was assigned to me by mistake. Peter: do you know who owns nsFileSpecWithUIImpl?
Is this just a problem with attachments, or are other file open/save dialogs affected? Is this really Mac-specific? cc Law
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).
Updating QA Contact.
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 mail-specific.
Is this a dup of 34051?
No, this can't be bug 34051, as that is about FileSpec interfaces. This is about a modal dialog, specifically http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/mailnews/base/resources/content/ openSaveAttachment.xul 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].
nsbeta3-, doesn't seem to meet P1 or P2 criteria.
Accepting to get out of bugzilla nag mail.
nominating for dogfood (from sdagley's list of bugs that are good candidates for our next release)
over to file handling.
This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies there as well or resolve this bug. I will resolve this bug as WONTFIX in four weeks if no action has been taken. To filter this and similar messages out, please filter for "mac_cla_reorg".
resolve this as worksforme; The shortcuts now work in mozilla 1.4/netscape 7.1 on osx.
