Change Search Shortcut 0.22.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
Allows to change the search shortcut. After the comedy with Panorama taking over CTRL+E, then switching to CTRL+SHIFT+E, without restoring CTRL+E, I've decided to make this very simple plug-in to allow people to choose their own shortcut.
This add-on has been marked as experimental by its developers
About this Add-on
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, shift, control, accel, alt. 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.
The default is CTRL+E.
v0.22 : Updated compatibility data on v0.2, no further changes.
