Alt+ArrowDown should open the list of entered URL items. (The menu which pops up, when you click on the down arrow (blue triangle pointing down) right of the URL bar. This is obligatory if you want to use this feature without a mouse ("accessibility") and mimics the behaviour of Windows comboboxes (4x Win).

what about linux/mac?
nsbeta1+, can minus if there is keyboard workaround

The url bar isn't any type of widget, it's just a textfield + a button which opens a menu. We currently have an editable menulist that we could be using instead, but I agree with Matthew that we should get rid of these. On Windows, alt+down-arrow also drops non-editable dropdowns. So I propose that we special case this for the urlbar and fix it in the (non-editable) menulist's binding.

hewitt, are you interested in doing this (particularly since the urlbar is now indeed a specialized widget)?

What about pressing F6? This would duplicate the functionality of IE on Windows...
No. Please don't confuse bugs, and don't mass spam a question. The bug report 'as is' is a windows parity report (and winie is a windows app)
The element you're trying to QI to nsIDOMXULPopupElement is an hbox. The history popup itself is not in the anon content, it would be the first explicity menupopup child of the textbox. You wouldn't need to QI the element anyway, its just an xbl-defined property you are calling. Also, showPopup is not yet properly implemented, it is still called openPopup in popup.xml
Comment on attachment 61838 [details] [diff] [review] Tested -- works sr=hewitt, but remove the !historyPopup.open check, as "open" isn't implemented in popup.xml yet, and you don't need that check anyway.

in Solaris CVS build as of 12/17/01 alt+arrowdown puts moz in the background... Not sure if this is intended on Unix.
vrfy fixed using comm bits [2002.01.07.0x] on rh7.2, winnt and mac 10.1.2 --however, the list opens in the upperleft of the screen, offset from the browser window. filed bug 118644 for that.
