I want to change the order for using the TAB key to move through tools

This is a difficult question to search for answers to, because the word "tab" is more often used to refer to browser tabs. I'm using it to refer to the TAB key -- used not to move through browser tabs, but to move through tools in the Firefox window.

I have frequently used the TAB key to move from the URL field to the Search field. Previously, this required using the TAB key only once, but with the latest upgrade (67.0), one TAB from the URL field goes to one of the other tools that I have between URL and Search fields. But I have no need to TAB to those tools. Is there any way, short of moving those fields around, to change the tabbing order so that I can go back to only needing to hit the TAB key once?

Valgt løsning

You can set this pref to false on the about:config page to disable navigating with Tab key through items on the Navigation Toolbar.

  • browser.toolbars.keyboard_navigation = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Not really, if you can't move this buttons elsewhere; see Access toolbar functions using the keyboard.

You still can use command+K, command+option+F.

Would that turn it off completely? Or would I still be able to tab from the URL bar to the search field?

You can still use Tab to go to the location bar and the search bar. This is only about toolbar items that get a special outline like the Back/Forward buttons and the page actions (star) and the Bookmarks Toolbar.
