Alt+Up/Down also changes the focus to the next/previous button (when
available) so that isn't what I want. Also, F4 might be in use, like it
for example in MultiZilla to open the Tab Manager, so that key won't
always be available.
I guess that I have to change the binding to make SPACE and ENTER/RETURN
also work. Note that the 'Tabs' button in the bookmarks sidebar makes
use of an unknown/strange attribute called 'menubuttontype', which is
set to 'sidebar-panels' for this button, see also:
However, I was unable to locate a single other reference for this
attribute, but I found 'buttonstyle'. Maybe the former is in use by
themes, but I don't know.
Anyway, the button also uses attribute 'type' which is used in xul.css
for the binding so I guess that I should change/extend this binding:
or is there perhaps a better/easier way to solve this problem?
