How to configure:
1. Input about:config
in the address bar
2. Type changesearchshortcut
in the filter box
3. Change extensions.changesearchshortcut.key
to whatever key you want
4. Change extensions.changesearchshortcut.modifiers
to whatever modifier you want
5. Restart Firefox
The 'key' can be any printable character (even space).
Modifiers can be any of the following: meta
. If you want multiple modifiers, separate them by comma.
If, finally, Mozilla decides to ship Firefox with CTRL+E mapped to Panorama, you may want to use the Change Panorama Shortcut
as well, to avoid any conflicts.
Note: version 0.2 of this add-on will NOT
replace the current CTRL+K shortcut for 'search'. It will simply provide another
shortcut for it.
If you need something that will simply change the shortcut which is now CTRL+K, get version 0.1 of this plug-in.
