Re: KEYNAV:GtkMenubBar And Accessibility (bug 53543)


If I understand correctly you are content with F10 posting a submenu as long as 
the focus remains in the menu bar.

If so, what do you want the Escape key to do. Your comments in bug 53544 assume 
that the menu would not be posted. Do they need to be amended if we do post a 
submenu when a menu item is selected?
