Works great now. I was so lost without this great extension. Thanks very much!

Keyconfig is one of the most usefully extensions which I would not know what to do without! Thanks for the great work!!!

But it would make using keyconfig way more comfortable to have the enhancements of keconfig_enh in the main version as well! Especially the filters, searching and the possibility to see the code behind the existing (predefined) shortkeys.
Are these things going to be added to the main version?

I don't think that there ever would be enough shortcuts to justify such a functionality.

Something like this might be included but as implemented in the modified version this is mostly useless as it often only displays the content of the command attibute (which is only a reference to the <command> element holding the actual code).

Hi,
I want configure as a shortcut this command:
Bookmarks -> Bookmarks Manager -> File -> New Bookmarks
With DOM I have find that this is the command:
goDoCommand('cmd_bm_newbookmark');
I have configured Keyconfig like in this picture:

but it doesn't run.
I use Firefox 1.5.0.3 and Windows XP.
Thanks in advanced for your attention.

If you want this shortcut in the Bookmarks Manager you would need to select the window via right-click (official version) or use the keyconfig shortcut from the Bookmarks Manager (in the modified version, or old releases) and set it there.

If you want to use it from the main window, try:
Code: Select all
BookmarksCommand.createNewBookmark({parent: document.getElementById("bookmarks-menu").resource, index: -1});
.

I think there are, but in the end I don't change the keys that often, so I can live without that functionality.

Great!

Is there a way I can find out about commands like this - without asking here? If yes: how?

I'm having what seems to be a fundamental problem with keyboard shortcuts: the default actions that came with FF that are assigned to certain keys (like "Go to top of page" = Home) aren't working correctly for me in FF 1.5.0.3 ... and I had the same problem in 1.5.02.

Similar problems with Page Down and Page Up. To get to top/end of page I have to use Ctrl-Home/Ctrl-End.

My (possibly inept) search of this thread didn't turn up any hits discussing this particular problem, so if you all have already had this discussion, my apologies.

In case it's relevant, I've got a MS keyboard with all the browsing buttons on the left, media buttons on the right, My Computer, Calc and Sleep on far right.
Also, when using IE, Home and End and other keys work "as advertised" in the keyboard shortcut inventory. It's just in FF that I get this problem.

Thanks

Nevermind my last post: Learned that Caret Browsing was on and that it has this effect (noted in the Accessibility article), but there's no warning of same either at the Tools>Options>Advanced, General Tab or in the related Help entry.

Thanks go to dickyvl.

Is there any way to disable keyboard shortcuts? For example, if I'm on any webpage and type an apostrophe (') on the page, instead of treating the apostrophe as text, Firefox opens a search bar at the bottom of the screen. This is incredibly annoying. IE doesn't do this.

I don't really want to install an extension. Anyway, Dorando's extension doesn't work for the latest version, and I installed Onemen's extension and it didn't do anything.

Pardon my ranting, but any software should have a feature to allow the user to modify keyboard shortcuts, when they give you defaults.

Yes, by clicking the 'Disable' button.

Jim001 wrote:For example [...] apostrophe (') [...]
This shortcut is not defined by a <key> but by an event handler. Those shortcuts cannot be modified with keyconfig.

Uhm, <a href="http://mozilla.dorando.at/keyconfig.xpi">keyconfig</a> does work with the latest version...

Dorando,

I was able to get the extension at the bottom of your page working - the one that says is from Onemen. When I try to install your extension, I get a box that says that it is only compatible with version up to 1.5. I'm running 1.5.0.3.

Anyway, I got Onemen's version running. But as you indicated, my problem is something different. I'm trying to disable the find-as-you-type feature, but currently there is no way to do this. There are a ton of bugs reported on this in bugzilla. But Mozilla seems to indicate that it's supposed to work this way. So for me and countless others, we are unable to type an apostrophe or a forward slash without invoking the "find" dialogue box. They might as well disable the letter "a" as well.

I sure hope they fix this or it's back to IE.

Thanks,

Jim
