The same problem with all tabs in all dialogs.

Trigger the access key on keydown event to avoid conflicting with browser native shortcut keys

comment:3 Changed 14 years ago by Garry Yao

The current definition of 'access key' is not complete with the following perspective:

  1. Access keys are missing for many dialog fields;
  2. There's no access key prompt in label/title;
  3. It's better to have a access key for 'switching between dialog pages' besides assigning each tab with a single key, e.g. 'Ctrl-Tab'.

Sorry... there must be some missing information here. Check out the Accessibility documentation:


  • ALT+F10 to move the focus to the tabs.
  • At this point, TAB/SHIFT+TAB or ARROWS to change the tab.
  • ENTER to select the TAB and move the focus to its contents.

Am I missing something?

You are right, this is not a bug. The mechanism for using ALT+F10 to get to the tabs section was not known to the tester at the time. I propose closing the bug as invalid.
