Problem: Some form fields are not recognized as such.
So, if shortcuts are assigned to alpha-letters, or to cursor keys, the filed becomes unusable.
A stopgap measure would be to have a Button to enable/disable the extension.
An example: Try to comment on:
(unfortunately, you have to register first, free of course).
- by bodwyn, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I'm actually looking for an extension to disable ctrl+w, which Shortkeys doesn't do, but
Mike was very prompt, clear and helpful to respond to me, so full marks for service, and
Shortkeys dev team (probably Mike) has a new fan when I need its functionality.
- by Firefox user 13543417, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I'm so glad this extension was ported to Firefox Quantum! It's a very useful tool when working on designing web apps! Thank you for your continued support, Peter Malecka. :)
- by jjmcgaffey, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thank you. I've been using Dorando KeyConfig for ages (even when it stopped being officially supported, and I had to sneak it in to Firefox) - I _hate_ backspace taking me back a page any time a text field isn't in focus, and the Alt-arrow back and forward drives me nuts (a two-handed shortcut? Really? I know, there's an Alt key on the right too - I never use it). I was afraid I'd lose my fixes - Alt-z for back and Alt-x for forward - with version 57. Thank you so much for making this!
It is a little bit complicated, because the text fields for creating a shortcut will happily take Alt or Backspace and then ignore it because it's not the key (which is alt or backspace - no caps). I had to go round a couple times to get that set up right (the instructions on the right are very helpful). But now it works, yay! Saved my sanity.
- by Lee Peterson, 4 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 Chris Peterson, 5 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!
