- by Firefox user 13378009, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5This doesn't support browser.ctrlTab.previews. Would like to remap something else to use the browser.ctrlTab.previews (jump back and forth between the tab I was on last).
Developer responseposted 3 years agoI'd be really thrilled if you could describe this feature on github: https://github.com/pmalecka/chrome-shortkeys . Please raise an issue there and let me know the details there.
- by Lee Peterson, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5F1 for Go Back and F2 for Go Forward have always seemed like logical keyboard shortcuts to me, and for some reason Firefox has never exposed those actions for the OS to hook onto. This add-on is pure genius, not just for my reasons, but for so many more. Great job. Saved me the time of digging into WebExtensions myself tonight.
- by lullabee, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5For me, customizable keybinds are mandatory, so this addon is a god-send.
The only problem I see is that it waits for the page to be fully loaded before working.
If this can be fixed (maybe loading content scripts on page opening / removing load checks for appropriate actions like tab switching), I'll update my rating to 5 instead of 4.
- by naoric, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Loved it on Chrome and was very glad to find it here!
One thing still bothers me though - the sites filter doesn't work whether I'm trying to restrict site pattern or whitelist others..
It it just me?
- by Firefox user 13256743, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Would it be possible to have the shortcuts defined in the extension have higher priority than those in the page? I use alt+arrow to switch tabs, but it only works if I'm not in a text field otherwise it tries to navigate within the field (a function I don't really use).
Apart from that I greatly enjoy the addon as it's the only webextension I know off able to customize keyboard shortcuts in Firefox Nightly.
- by eriador, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5I'll rate again later, I haven't tried it yet as it says it's "not compatible with Firefox 55.0.2" so I'll have to wait for FF 57. I need it because the KeyBinder addon I was using won't be upgraded to WebExtensions.
Quick question: can I use it to assign the function keys to the downloads window and to the bookmarks sidebar, so that I can open them quickly?
EDIT: I'm not a coder so i can't submit pull requests to your github, and the issues section seems disabled. Since this is a FF-specific request, I cannot open an issue for the original chrome-shortkeys either...EDIT: Issues now enabled on Github. I looked into the current API for webextension on FF, and the API for opening the Downloads window/bookmark panel. Sorry
there's no need to wait for FF57, this will become compatibile with earlier version of FF (47-*) with the new version of the addon. It's already submmitted and awaiting review from AMO.

- by Chris Peterson, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5For some reason, this add-on is hardcoded to only work in Firefox versions 50 or earlier:
Update: The problem was fixed. Thanks!
