Currently on devices with a hardware menu button one can access content specific menu items: share, save as PDF, find in page, request desktop site while in about:home (the user and URL is still on a website). Should these be disabled while the user is viewing about:home?

Screenshot, you can access Find in Page for example in editing mode but that won't do anything for you
I guess, for parity reasons with s/w menu, it's better to hide the menu when in editing mode. But in tablets we show this menu.

Yeah, disabling the hw menu options while in editing mode is probably the right thing to do here.
Ian, long time needinfo^
