Default UI Feedback

I'm really enjoying the game, but it can be cumbersome to sort through all the menus. I've listed a couple suggestions below and if I come up with any more I'll update the list. Please feel free to add your own.

1. Hotkeys for opening menus should still work in menus. For example, I can't get to the map screen by pressing 'M' on the relation screen.

2. Pressing 'M' should change between the galactic and sector maps on the map screen.

3. I'd like to see my current relationship standing (number) directly on the race diplomacy menu (where options such as trade, get/solve quests appear).

4. Linked fire for weapons. I currently use external macros but it would be nice to have it in-game.

5. An option to have a weapon's icon flash over my ship when the cooldown is over.

6. Ability to accept quests in the current sector without going into menus. We can already see the list, why not allow us to accept them by clicking on the quest name?

7. More organized quest list. All quests (even unaccepted) should show up in the log. There could be tick boxes to show/hide quests from certain races, sectors or accepted/unaccepted.

That's all for now.

One additional but important suggestion:

The menus are subdivided too much. Trading, accepting and solving quests could all be boiled down into a single more information rich menu. Right now there is a lot of navigating through menus but the screen space in each menu is rather under utilized.

2) Not quite what you want, but tab does this.
5) It should do this already.

It would be REALLY nice to be able to put certain races on ignore.

I'd like to add the request for a means to display the contents of each installed cargo bay without bringing up the equipment panel; just like one could in Depths and Din's.
