Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-10-31 12:19:03 CET
There are a bunch of media keys that still do not work correctly in Web Access. Firefox has slightly better support than Chrome, but it's not perfect. The ones we've found are:

 * Application keys 1-5 (on Microsoft keyboard)
 * Explorer key
 * Redo, New, Close, Send, Save

Note that some keys are grabbed by the browser (bug 4755), or the OS (bug 7414). This bug is about those not otherwise grabbed, but still unhandled by Web Access.

>  * Application keys 1-5 (on Microsoft keyboard)

Chrome sends F14-F18, which doesn't seem correct. Reported upstream:


Firefox sends some non-standard values. Also reported upstream:


>  * Explorer key

The spec has updated and we are stuck on the old version. Firefox is as well, but Chrome is using the new values.

>  * Redo, New, Close, Send, Save

Send is caused by a typo in our code. We've written "MainSend" instead of the correct "MailSend".

Chrome fails to identify the remaining keys. Reported upstream:


Firefox works fine, but it does set a blank code value for some keys. So reported that as well:


Spell also doesn't work, but it doesn't even work locally in X11.
