We've just migrated from ComponentArt Menu to Telerik Menu because of client requirenent for two features: Keyboard Access and Multiple browsers support.
We've a fixed horizontal Menu with 6 static MenuItems, out of which, only two have sub-menus. (Menu_Usage.png)
The requirement is that these links should be accessible via Keyboard using Shortcut Keys. This works prefectly with IE - pressing [Alt + <Shortcut Key>] sets focus on the right Menu Item and we can traverse through other Menu Items using 'Tab'-key.
But with Firefox, pressing [Shift + Alt + <Shortcut Key>] doesn't set the focus on the first Menu Item - it makes a click on the first Menu Item! Result is that traversal is not possible at all, as using shortcut keys immediately opens the page by clicking the hyperlink.
I've attached two snapshots from the Telerik Demo opened in IE and FF, with slight code modification to enable Shortcut Keys on one of the Demos. IE - all is fine, but using ShortCut Keys in FF activates (and clicks!) the MenuItem, and navigation via keyboard doesn't work anymore.
FYI, this is the default behavior in Firefox for Hyperlinks

But I need a solution/workaround. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
