"Status Bar" and "Sort By" have redundant access keys / mnemonics in View menu
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20090715 Thunderbird/3.0b3 Status Bar (showTaskbarCmd in utilityOverlay.dtd) and Sort By (sortMenu in messenger.dtd) both have "S" assigned to their access key though they appear in the same menu. I have been using the key for Sort By for a long time, so Status Bar is the newcomer. Of letters appearing in the label, "a", "u", and "r" are unused as far as I can tell. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Alt-V 2. S 3. Various mnemonics assigned to sub-items of sort menu Actual Results: Either nothing at all, or menu item in View menu that matches step 3 is selected. Expected Results: Select a sort option.
WFM here on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168pre) Gecko/20090810 Lightning/1.0pre Shredder/3.0b4pre ID:20090810161308 ALT-V + S highlit only "statusBar" item. Could you try to see if it still happens with http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-comm-1.9.1/ ?
I see this with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124pre) Gecko/20090811 Shredder/3.0b4pre. Gary, do you see this on non-windows? Aureliano, what does your "sort by" map to? personally i'd like to see status bar move to toolbars menu

(In reply to comment #2) > Aureliano, what does your "sort by" map to? I'm sorry, I'm wrong: ALT-V + S highlit FIRST view--> status bar, but also view-->sort by has "S" key accelerator.
