Mozilla should show keyboard modifiers for clicking links (etc.) on context menus so that users can find out what the modifiers are.
I don't think so. The Windows UI guidelines say (and the Mac OS UI guidelines implicitly suggest) that keyboard shortcuts should not be advertised on context menus, to reduce clutter.
That's interesting, because right clicking a window title shows me Alt-F4. And Netscape Communicator's Messenger hints about others. FWIW, the right click on a window title is equivalent to the system menu which is treated as a normal menu, ... WRT Clutter, right click an editable listbox on w2k w/ unicode character sets installed Undo|Cut,Copy,Paste,Delete|Select All| Right To left Reading Order Show Unicode control characters Insert Unicode control characters> LRM Left-to-right mark ... Go to a common dialog or probably explorer, right click on whitespace View>|Arrange Icons>,Line Up Icons,Refresh|Paste,Paste Shortcut,Undo Rename ctrl-z|New>|Properties That's two. It seems ms is limiting the number of shortcuts per menu to one which is reasonable. It's the one menuitem for which I would *want* to know the shortcut.
I don't think commands like "Undo" and "Select All" need to have their shortcuts listed in context menus, because users can find those shortcuts using normal menus (at least when you're not in a dialog). I just want click modifiers (like "Ctrl+click" for Open Link in New Window) listed.

See also bug 81563, advertise all keyboard shortcuts on context menus (not just click modifiers).
Ehm, where else (if not in context menu) can I find list of keyboard modifiers for clicking links?
I don't think we should do this. It's nonstandard, would be distracting (imo), and would make the context menu needlessly wide. We're soon going to have a keyboard shortcuts help document, like IE has (afaict, that's the only way IE exposes these shortcuts too). timeless, I suspect alt+F4 is displayed in the titlebar "context menu" because it just shows the menu displayed when you left click the app icon, which isn't really a context menu in my opinion. Marking wontfix.
