In the Firefox Sync preferences in Tools > Options, you can find that the 'Manage account' button and the 'Add-ons' checkbox have the same accesskey, which is 'A' making it very difficult to access either of these options.
Good catch. This should be pretty simple to fix. Access keys are defined in browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/syncSetup.dtd

This looks fine. What about browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/syncSetup.dtd?

Also, some of these access keys are just weird. "m" for bookmarks. "r" for history. Can someone else weigh in with the historical background on why things are the way they are?

You mean 'A' in 'Account' and 'Add-ons'?

> <!ENTITY signIn.account2.label      "Account">
> <!ENTITY signIn.account2.accesskey  "A">

> <!ENTITY engine.addons.label        "Add-ons">
> <!ENTITY engine.addons.accesskey    "A">

Those akeys are not shown at the same time. 'Account' is at Existing Account window, 'Add-ons' is at Sync Options window.
Are we going to land the patch?

alt+h would open help page when the sync tab is selected in the options window so can't be used for history.  However, alt+b doesn't seem to do anything.
