Re: Firefox Sometimes Not Responding to Quick Navigation Keys


Dear Marco,

Thank you for your response.  I wasn't certain whether navigation was active from the menubar, but figured it probably wasn't.  Here is a list of steps that will hopefully allow you to recreate the issue.
1.  I opened FF and clicked the web address shown at the top left of the menubar.
2.  I navigated right one item to "Enter search or address:," and entered
3.  I Navigated down until focus was on "Main Menu" which is a link.
4.  I tried pressing H for Heading, G for Graphic, and L for List, all of which are elements on this page.  In all three cases, nothing happened.

I hope this helps.  As I said, this behavior is intermittent, so I hope you're able to reproduce.
