Works now. For some odd reason, my Greasemonkey stopped working for me, so I did a clean new install of Firefox (deleted user profile) and installed keyconfig from the source I gave above, no hiccups and it works.

To make keyconfig compatible with later versions of Firefox.

Download keyconfig.xpi from http://mozilla.dorando.at/.

Rename to keyconfig.zip

Extract to a directory

Open install.rdf

Find <targetApplication><rdf>
<id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</id>
<minVersion>1.5.0.6</minVersion>
<maxVersion>2.0.0.3</maxVersion>
</rdf></targetApplication>

Replace the 2.0.0.3 with 2.0.0.99 or similar.

Rezip up into a zip file (make sure that the root is the directory that contains chrome/ components/ etc.)

Rename to keyconfig.xpi

Drag into firefox

Install

I'm using keyconfig 20060828.1 Is the newest version of keyconfig 20060828.1?

Is the newest version of keyconfig to be found here (?):
http://mozilla.dorando.at/

I just installed ff 2.0.0.11 - It disabled keyconfig

So I used the MR Tech's Local Install add-on to override the incompatibility problem. All it takes is a mouse click and a restart. I've only been using 2.0.0.11 for a few minutes. Will I experience problems?

It's very useful.

How weird. After I installed Firefox 2.0.0.11, keyconfig did not work. However, it works now, and I have not even changed anything.

That makes no sense to me. I got an incompatibility warning and keyconfig was disabled. I clicked "check for update" and then was none to be found.

And none of the keyboard shortcuts worked. Hmm... maybe I could have just restarted firefox and tried again...

I'm using latest trunk with new profile with the fix below. I was able to install and the list of shortcuts are there but I can't add new shortcut to keyconfig. When I open "Key Editor" from "Add a new key" button, pressing "OK" will do nothing. Any idea what's wrong?

It seems it also does not work in 3.0 Beta 1.

thanks

It seems that in current trunk the "app-startup" doesn't fire, but it should be possible to workaround this by changing
Code: Select all
function keyconfigService() { }
to
Code: Select all
function keyconfigService() { this.os.addObserver(this,"stupid-dummy",false); }
in <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/profile">Profile</a>/extensions/keyconfig@dorando/components/keyconfig-service.js

Can keyconfig be updated for Firefox 3. RC1 is out.
It also looks like it will need to be on a secure server or have a signature;
otherwise, not checking for compatibility would probably have worked.

The app-startup issue still seems to be present in the beta (I've had no time to investigate if this is a bug in the core, or a wrong assumption on my side), additionally "Add a new key" broke but should be fixable by replacing
Code: Select all
document.createElement
with
Code: Select all
gDocument.createElement
in Profile/extensions/keyconfig@dorando/chrome/keyconfig.jar!/content/keyconfig.js

(don't forget to disable extensions.checkCompatibility and extensions.checkUpdateSecurity to actually install/enable it).

No, but you might be able to create a custom extensions to achieve that by using a blank (.xpi is a .zip) one and pasting following above the </overlay> in overlays/main.xul
Code: Select all
<script><![CDATA[

var forceCurrent = {
 onLoad: function forceCurrent_onLoad(){
  eval("handleLinkClick ="+handleLinkClick.toString().replace(
  'case 0:',
  'case 0: if(event.shiftKey && !event.ctrlKey) return forceCurrent.handleLinkClick(event, href); '));
 },
 handleLinkClick: function forceCurrent_handleLinkClick(event, href) {
  var a = gPrefService.getIntPref("browser.link.open_newwindow");
  var b = gPrefService.getIntPref("browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction");

  gPrefService.setIntPref("browser.link.open_newwindow",1);
  gPrefService.setIntPref("browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction",0);

  loadURI(href, null, null, false);
  window.setTimeout(forceCurrent.reset,0,a,b);

  event.stopPropagation();
  event.preventDefault();
  return true;
 },
 reset: function forceCurrent_reset(a,b){
  gPrefService.setIntPref("browser.link.open_newwindow",a);
  gPrefService.setIntPref("browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction",b);
 }
}

window.addEventListener("load", forceCurrent.onLoad, false);

]]></script>
. This assumes that you wanted to force links that would normally open in a new window to open in the current tab, but note that it won't work always. The example code hijacks Shift+Click on links but not if the Ctrl key is down (the 'event.shiftKey && !event.ctrlKey' ), available modifiers are altKey, ctrlKey, shiftKey, metaKey (not usable on Windows).

The best I can come up with currently is (note that the folders need to be visible for it to work):
Code: Select all
const MSG_FOLDER_FLAG_FAVORITE = 0x80000000;

var folderTree = GetFolderTree();
var currentIndex = folderTree.view.selection.currentIndex;

for(i = currentIndex + 1, l = folderTree.view.rowCount; i < l; i++)
 if(folderTree.view.getResourceAtIndex(i).
    QueryInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIMsgFolder).
    getFlag(MSG_FOLDER_FLAG_FAVORITE))
  return folderTree.view.selection.select(i);

for(i = 0, l = currentIndex; i < l; i++)
 if(folderTree.view.getResourceAtIndex(i).
    QueryInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIMsgFolder).
    getFlag(MSG_FOLDER_FLAG_FAVORITE))
  return folderTree.view.selection.select(i);

d.m.f.

The very reason I am at this forum today. Can I do anything about this? keyconfig is one of my three favorite extensions (wish such a feature were built into Firefox). Thanks.
Compatibility information has been updated (actually to 2.0.0.11 now), you likely need to click on Tools > Add-ons > Find Updates (ignore the incorrect message at the top, only the one below the extension name is correct).

Note that it is possible to disable compatibility checking by adding a boolean 'extensions.checkCompatibility' through about:config (can be re-enabled trough the Add-ons Manager).

mpromber wrote:I see it as enabled, but the Preferences button in Add-ons is greyed out, [...]
The keyconfig window is not really a preference window for itself, but rather a Tool for the Application.

mpromber wrote:[...] Ctrl-Shit-F12 brings up an empty keyconfig dialogue box where I can't change anything.
If you previously had an unofficial version installed you might need a workaround to get it to work again.

dmcritchie wrote:Can keyconfig be updated for Firefox 3. RC1 is out.
:-k The newest builds I can find are labeled firefox-3.0b2pre, and 3.0b2-candidates don't seem to be available yet.

That works perfectly! Thanks loads,

Ant.

Hi, Dorando.

I have some troubles making this useful extension work in Fx 3.b1 (I'm using the portable version, if that matters). I already modified the keyconfig-service and added the unofficial-version patch but still the same.

The extension is installed and I can fire it, but the listing is empty. If I click on Add key it seems it does something for a little bit but nothing happens, no visual feedback is given. Any suggestions for me?

Thanks in advance.

Does the scroll function fail or does it trigger the Back/Forward function instead? Or does it fail after you've pressed the Back/Forward key?

Nope, but what Louise6380 has quoted should be all you need to get it working.

Anything in the Tools > Error Console (set javascript.options.showInConsole to true in about:config)?

I want to set a shortcut for toggling show/hide of bookmarks and navigation toolbar but I can't find the command. Does anybody know how to do this?

thanks.

@ilwhx
I think you also need, <a href="http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=3169008#3169008">this</a> in addition to what dorando <a href="http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=3182658#3182658">mentioned</a> above in order to make keyconfig work with Firefox 3 Beta, given that you have
Code: Select all
user_pref("extensions.checkCompatibility",false);
user_pref("extensions.checkUpdateSecurity",false);
in your user.js or created the boolean through about:config.
