Thanks, but this isn't anything to do with Firefox. The menu is drawn by the shell, which is also responsible for handling key events whilst the menu is on screen

affects: firefox (Ubuntu) → unity (Ubuntu)

Thanks for the triage. If it matters, I'm using unity-2d at the moment.

Confirmed in 12.04. However the bug appears to be fixed in 12.10 (now with Unity 6.0). Can anyone else verify it's fixed in 12.10?

I can confirm this issue here. pression alt+f+a does not open the 'save as' dialog in Unity but works fine in gnome-fallback-session
