change access key field from disabled to readonly

Issue #16348 resolved
Ken Geis created an issue

I sometimes need to copy an access key from one repository to another. When I open the key in one repository, the Key field is disabled so I cannot select the text and copy it. I would prefer that it is not disabled but set readonly. That way, I can select and copy the text but cannot edit it.

    Hi @kgeis,

    Which browser and OS are you using? You should be able to triple click the text and then copy it - does that work for you?

    I'm using Ubuntu 18.04. That works on Chrome but not on Firefox. That
    explains why I hadn't seen it before, as I recently switched browsers.

    Ah, Firefox! I just gave that a try, and while you can't select the text, right-clicking to copy works. Can you try that?

    Copy is an option in the context menu when I right-click, but it does
    not copy the key.

    The HTML "readonly" attribute works as desired in both browsers.
