Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b13pre) Gecko/20110311 Firefox/4.0b13pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0b13pre) Gecko/20110311 Firefox/4.0b13pre

A Firefox own(!) "internal"(!) hotkey for show/hide an "addon-bar" for example shows and hides it ONLY wheen a keyb layout is EN

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add to the system a foreign keyb layout, in my own case it's RU
2. Close the "addon-bar" (formerly "statusbar") if opened
3. Switch to native EN-US layout and press Ctrl+/ a few times

An "addon-bar" are shown or hiden on each keypress

4. Switch to the added foreign layout and press Ctrl+/ a few times

Nothing happens

It's VERY bad that a FF key-nav don't understand a keycodes but only "chars".

Confirmed. Also does not work a keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+~ in the layout that is different from English.

=Haron=, is this confirmed on Ubuntu?
If so it's need to change affected platforms from XP to "All".
OS: Windows XP → All

FWIW, I've opened Bug 641338 to propose to change keyboard shortcut for toggling Addon bar in Russian builds.
