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".
Version: unspecified → Trunk
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

On the computer with operating system Ubuntu I confirm presence of the given error
same for me win7x64
FWIW, I've opened Bug 641338 to propose to change keyboard shortcut for toggling Addon bar in Russian builds.

Hey Vitar,
Can you still reproduce this issue or should we close it?
