Description

7 years ago
The existing Wiki for keyboard shortcuts states: "Most of this content is highly out of date (some pages haven't been updated since the project began in 1998) and exists for historical purposes only."  

The information is important not only for users but also for developers.  The former often ask about such shortcuts.  For the latter, it is important that they not implement the use of a keyboard shortcut for a new capability when that shortcut is already in use by an existing capability; see bug #564328 for an example.  

Note that the existing Wiki page is not even in wiki.mozilla.org.  Instead, it's in www-archive.mozilla.org.  It further states: "If there are any pages on this archive site that you think should be added back to www.mozilla.org, please file a bug."

Re comment #1:  The cited page addresses only Firefox, not Thunderbird or SeaMonkey.  

I'm not sure, but it seems to address only Windows.  Do Mac keyboards have Ctrl and Alt keys?
It is OS sensitive, and can be altered by changing the help with settings on the right sidebar. It makes sense to me for each project to handle the issue as they see fit. For example Thunderbird has http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts

That more or less leaves SeaMonkey documentation. Quick look at http://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/#general did not turn up much besides the mZ knowledge base.

Not having a currently maintained combined list means that a shortcut in Firefox might also be used -- with a quite different meaning -- in Thunderbird.  This can only create the risk of a shortcut conflict in SeaMonkey, which has some aspects of both Firefox and Thunderbird.
Let's use the wiki itself to coordinate content-related issues.

How do I do that.  I am an end-user, not a developer.  Please do not close a bug report without greater explanation on how to proceed.  In any case, this is indeed a valid request.  If a bug report with a valid request is closed as invalid merely because bugzilla.mozilla.org is not the correct forum, please indicate in that bug report more details about the correct forum.
