I've said this before, but:

The menu keyboard control should be removed in my opinion. It adds quite a
few serious focus bugs while adding a rarely used feature.

Try opening a browser and then creating a large morph (such as a drawing)
that partially overlaps it, then try to work with the morph, and watch
yourself being driven crazy. The window rises to the top as the pointer
passes over certain parts of it.

Turning the preference off removes the functionality but leaves the bugs in
place, so that doesn't solve anything.

Please remove it.
