Description

Currently it appears we have no keyboard shortcut for going to the home page.

I suggest Alt+Home. It fits well with Alt+Left and Alt+Right (for Back and 
Forward), and is used for going to the home page in Internet Explorer.

Actually, on Mac OS this would be Command+Home (to match Command+Left and 
Command+Right for Back and Forward). On all other platforms it would be 
Alt+Home.

Why was the modifier hard-coded to either "alt" or "meta"?  Shouldn't it have 
been "accel"?

accel is ctrl on windows. we hard coded to !accel. effectively.
we really need a way to name alt and meta w/ one word so we don't need the 
different mac/pc names.

Would it be the same as what GetMenuAccessKey() returns in 
nsMenuBarListener.cpp?

vrfy fixed: Alt+Home works fine on winNT and linux [2001.01.12.08]. Command+Home
works fine on Mac OS [2001.01.12.08].
