BuildID:    2001081715

The buttons on the console cannot be controlled
from the keyboard alone.  (At least I can't figure
out how to do it.)  This is not a major bug but a
very nice missing feature.  (Some buttons have
underlined letters, such as File, but alt-F or ctrl-F
don't do anything.)  True of all builds I've tried.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tasks/Tools/JavaScript Console
2. try expected keyboard shortcuts such as alt-f

Actual Results:  no response

Expected Results:  drop down menu or action (such as "clear")
Confirming and marking NEW. The menubar (File, Edit, View, etc) hotkeys do work
for me, though I don't see a way of accessing the buttons through keyboard-alone.

Reporter: You may wish to try a more recent build to see if that helps with your
menubar problems:

Summary: no keyboard shortcuts for buttons on javascript console → No keyboard shortcuts for buttons on javascript console
I have no problem using the menus with Alt+letter, but it would be nice to see
the toolbar functionality from the menus, in a similar to editor's view toolbar,
possibly with accelerator keys. Plus there's lots of other keyboard navigation
missing, such as tabbing to the entry or scrolling through the error list.

I was asked to try a more recent build.  I've been advised never
to try "latest", so I tried 2001083016, the last one before latest.
Still has the same problems.  Ctrl-w doesn't even work to close
the window.  It is possible that it works on some platforms but not
others.  I am using Red Hat Linux 7.1.  Jon Baron

You need to focus the javascript console window first (click anywhere in that
window), then alt works to select the menus, works under win32, sigh. Also, I
just tested macos x, and you also need to focus the window before key commands
(like command-w to close the window) work, double sigh.

-> hewitt since I think he's partly responsible for the js console, but I could
be wrong ;-)
