Since Alt+F its a mnemonic that opens the file menu; when you have  
your own dhtml "file" menu you might want to have that to open on alt 
+f instead.
Right now we get both our own menu and the system menu opened.
We managed to prevent this on IE in some way, although I remember that  
there were some other shortcuts that we couldn't prevent.  So I  
thought; ok I'll open my app in a new window without the menu.

<button onclick="window.open('http://www.bindows.net', '_blank',  
'menubar=0,location=0,status=0,toolbar=0,scrollbars=1')">Hello World</ 

But the menu opens on alt+f anyway! Is that a bug or per design?

I also need to prevent tab sometimes, can that be done?
