In the past when I opened a menu with a shortcut key (for example Alt + f) the menu itself would open.

Now the shortcut keys are displayed but the menu is not opened, this makes it way harder to remember the right shortcuts, and makes it impossible to learn new shortcut paths.

How do I change this behavior?
