Description Fred New 2005-03-26 17:36:03 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1

Description of problem:
With the Gnome in FC3, I could focus on certain parts of the menu by pressing
letter keys.  For example, Alt-F1 would start the menu and after pressing the
down arrow once, I could move to "System Settings" by pressing "s" several
times.  This capability is no longer available.  Only the arrow keys work -
very time-consuming when you are trying to reach the middle line of the menu.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On FC4T1, log in.
2. Press Alt-F1
3. Press a down arrow
4. Press s

Actual Results:  Nothing happens when I press s.

Expected Results:  When I press s, "Sound & Video" should become highlighted and the
"Sound & Video" menu should appear.
