    Description

      The Bug:

      Some selected buttons and fields can't be interacted with using both the SPACE and ENTER keys.

      When using the TAB key to select buttons/fields, it's a commonly known feature across all different types of software that you're able to hit either the ENTER or the SPACE keys to interact with the desired button/field, however, in the Minecraft Launcher, some buttons/fields can only be interacted with using one or the other, and not both keys, therefore introducing a rather strange inconsistency.

      Steps to Reproduce:

      • Start the Minecraft Launcher and hit the TAB key twice, in order to select the "News" button.
      • Hit the SPACE key in an attempt to navigate to the news page and observe how nothing happens.
      • Hit the ENTER key in an attempt to navigate to the news page and observe how you are presented with the news page.

      Observed Behavior:

      A small number of buttons/fields throughout the launcher allow the use of both the SPACE and ENTER keys to be interacted with, however, most buttons/fields only allow the use of the SPACE or ENTER keys and not both.

      Expected Behavior:

      All selected buttons and fields within the launcher can be interacted with using both the SPACE and ENTER keys.
