Mozilla knew of the issue before Firefox 2 was released, and a bug has
been filed [1]. One of the commenter's suggested making it a blocking
issue, but it wasn't considered to be a serious enough issue. I can't
remember where (I'm sure it's somewhere in Bugzilla, though), but
someone has already made an extension to make numeric access keys work
in Firefox 2.0. That will help people who understand the issue and
know where to get the extensions from, but a proper patch is required
for the browser itself.

For anyone interested, the full article is:

Best regards,
