Browser issue Access key "S" for post submit


Well-known member
There is a accesskey="s" for "Create Thread" and "Post Reply" buttons.

It technically works, but only if you click somewhere outside the editor before you press Ctrl + Alt + S.

If the cursor is active in the editor, pressing Ctrl + Alt + S in Safari or Chrome doesn't do anything.

Safari 6.0.4 and Chrome 27.0.1453.93 for Mac OS X 10.8.3.

I can confirm this in Chrome for Mac, but I'd never noticed it before, as my standard behaviour is [Tab], [Space] to post a message...

Firefox works correctly for me in Windows, but I don't think this is anything new - it's going to be limited by the iframe of the contenteditable area. 1.1 exhibits the same behavior.

In general, there's not a lot we can do to workaround it, especially with the varied accesskey triggers.
