Select language for pull request comment code snippet using keyboard? Edited

I've also tried tabbing (and all sorts of similar keystrokes) to try and focus the Select Language dropdown.

The best I have come up with, is the less-than-ideal:

Cmd+F to Search, and Type "Select language" (this will select the placeholder text for the language select), Press escape to exit the search, then Press Tab and then type the language you want.

To then submit the comment, Cmd+F to Search and Type "Save" and Escape which fill focus the button to save the comment.
