The new Compact toolbar button replaces the compactfolder extension nicely except that it does not have a keyboard accelerator.  Please add one to improve usability of this capability.  When using TB with Exchange or an IMAP server with "just mark it as deleted" selected, this is an often used capability.

Reproducible: Always

There is bug 86161 for SeaMonkey, but as those have to be implemented separately anyway for each application, confirming as a valid RFE.

As an FYI, I found instructions for how to use the keyconfig extension to add a keyboard shortcut at http://gerundinganimal.blogspot.com/2009/12/adding-compact-folder-button-to.html .

With only one vote, no dups and almost no cc this clearly isn't in demand, and shortcut key combinations are a scarce resource that we like to keep for high value functions. Plus we'd really rather see compact go away or do things like bug 286888. So I don't believe we would accept a patch for this request if it were offered.
