I wonder what needs to be done to make this work with Firefox 4/5/6/7. I really, really miss this extension...

Very useful indeed.
Is there a way to bind it to a keystroke without using AutoHotKey ?

Linux/Debian + Swiftfox - confirmed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am most thankful for this plugin - as one who has optimized most of his system to be fully (or as full as possible) to be usable without moving hands from keyboard, firefox plugins, like flash, have been a major nuisance for me. And binding commands to run is a basic feature on almost all window managers / desktop environments in existence (and if you run one that does not support it then you must have chosen so knowingly), so setting key binding for this on Linux should be easy task for anyone. Personally my binding is set to execute "swiftfox -unfocus" and I can confirm this plugin working on swiftfox 3.6.13 - remember to set the right command depending on your variant, ie. debian by default comes with "iceweasel", not "firefox" although their functianality is 100% the same.


Thank you!

Brilliant. Also handy when used with autohotkey:
^Escape::
if WinActive("ahk_class MozillaUIWindowClass") {
RunWait,"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -unfocus
WinActivate ahk_class MozillaUIWindowClass
}
return

Thank you, this is great. A simple solution to a bug that Mozilla has been unable to fix for 10 years.

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You are God. It works! I have been looking for this for so long. I used to work around the issue by simulating mouse clicks with Autohotkey, but this is much better. Thank you very much!

Where do I add the path and how do I bind a keystroke?

Review Addendum:

Sorry, the Target should look exactly like this (with the quotes):
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -unfocus

Good luck, and happy Control+F4ing!

It works! Thank you!

Some notes for lost individuals: In Windows, you can hit Win+R (to access Run), then type "firefox -unfocus" without the quotes, and strike enter.

Or create a shortcut to the executable in the System32 or user folder (accessed by typing system32 in run), modifying the "Target" in the properties window to look like this: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -unfocus" (with the quotes). Then you can name the shortcut something short and sweet, like "FF" Then you could execute this by the following sequence:

Win+R
FF
Enter

Mozilla: Without this extension, this is a big problem for experienced users: Get with the program!
