Thank you for this add-on! It's quite useful to customize Firefox to one's own preferences. It's easy to use and seems to do what it should be doing.
Nonetheless, an update would be nice to use it without the menu (now the add-on is accessible via menu: Tools > Key settings). I would probably put it in the Preferences window as separate section, called "Keymap" like in NetBeans -- but such a modification might not be possible due to security limitations in Firefox. An icon like other add-ons use it would also work.
Some site are conflicting with this addon: for example typing numbers in text field at https://confluence.atlassian.com triggers hotkeys. And more such incompatible sites are coming (even addons.mozilla.org), probably they started using some intrusive JS framework.
Upd: I had to switch to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/single-key-shortcuts
I bind backspace (in linux it is really needed) to return to previous page. And this extension works wrong on tags with property contenteditable="true". I want to delete previous symbol, but I go to previous page!
Almost perfect. Coming from Opera, I've gotten so used to 1 & 2 switching between tabs, and 0/9/6 for zoom + / zoom - / reset zoom. Key Config gives me that with zero effort. I gave 4 stars not 5 because there is very little documentation, and I can't figure out how to get to the settings in Firefox 30. (I wouldn't dock a whole star for requiring a restart, but since I'm already complaining I might as well nitpick.)
The addon is a bit glitched. If you press 1 or 2 to switch tabs while the cursor is in a text box, it switches tabs instead of inputting 1 or 2 into the text box. This makes it impossible to type 1 or 2 unless you do it in an external application (eg. notepad) and copy-paste to the text box in Firefox.
tl;dr This addon should not switch tabs using 1/2 shortcut keys while text box is selected.
This is a good extension for Opera users to familiar with Firefox. The predefined key are similiar to those single key shortcuts in Opera. But I can't find the configuration menu from the top left menu button.
This is a HUGE disappointment. I tried it as a replacement for the original keyconfig, thinking that this was the same add-on with a space added to the name. How wrong I was. First of all, it has only a tiny fraction of the many events that keyconfig has. Second, it disabled all the key bindings of keyconfig. What!? Try to find the original. It is much better.
I accidentally got into fullscreen mode and tried to use esc to get out. It didn't work and I had to use the help forum to find out how to get out. So I wanted to change esc so I wouldn't have that problem again. (What program doesn't use esc to get out of fullscreen--other than firefox?)
This addon lets esc be the fullscreen toggle. The addon at http://mozilla.dorando.at/readme.html doesn't appear to work on firefox 3.
A warning: do not be confused with the keyconfig addon by dorando (http://mozilla.dorando.at/readme.html). This is a completely different addon.
I didn't try this extension. By features It looks useful. If it implements in the future the feature "Importing/exporting settings to a file, compatible with Opera presets", It can to end being a real nice alternative.
