Bug #69230: Accelerators should not be affected by keyboard group/level

Simos Xenitellis
Hi All,
After the nice presentation of Mozilla L10n at GUADEC, there was a
discussion about important pending localisation issues in Mozilla. I
think I talked with Pascal about this and he suggested to bring it up
here.

The bug report is
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69230

It affects non-Latin keyboard layouts; when you press Alt-F to open the
File menu, you need to have switched to the correct layout (either
English if you have English Firefox, or your local language, if you have
the localised version).

This was an issue with GNOME and OpenOffice.org and has been fixed
already. See
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=23836
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=42122

This Mozilla issue has been reported in several places upstream, such as
https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/22151

Cheers,
Simos

Those are down, at least right now :-(

This is really an intl issue, not a l10n one.

I'm not sure, but consolidating all those historic bugs into precise
ones would be good. It can't do any bad, for sure.

Now they are available.

I believe the report
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69230
has the important information. Once the core issue is solved, all the
peripheral bug reports can be sorted out by non-developers.

Is there any other mailings that the report should be send to?
