Re: [orca-list] Firefox wish list.

Note that Darragh sent this message to me before

If you have any more comments, please add them to
that bug.

f: jump to form fields.
x: jump to checkboxes.
c: jump to combo boxes.
b: jump to buttons.
r: jump to radio button.
q: jump to quote.
d: jump to different element.
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9  jump to heading of level...

Just as a matter of interest, how hard are these quick keys to create?

On one final unrelated point.
It would be great if pressing alt on it's own would give focus to the menu bar.

This would fix one of the problems encountered by the user referenced
