Include overlay content (e.g. GDPR dialogs) in Firefox quick find for links

Veröffentlicht

I find the Quick Find keyboard shortcut ' for links in Firefox very useful for navigating a large portion of the web with keyboard only, but I notice that it doesn't work with most overlaid content, for example most GDPR dialogs or prompts to please log in or register. Is there a setting or add-on for Firefox to fix that or would a simple change to the HTML make that content searchable with Quick Find?

Example: Delete cookies. Open Yahoo. Press 'OK. Search result not found. Press Ctrl-F OK. Search result found. Then it's possible to press Tab and Shift-Tab to select the OK link, but by pressing the apostrophe key it apparently never works for any links on overlay windows.

Disclosure: I had asked this question four months ago on superuser, but didn't get any comments or answers (https://superuser.com/questions/1413795/include-overlay-content-e-g-gdpr-dialogs-in-firefox-quick-find-for-links)

Hi

if I understood your message correctly, you can configure shortcuts with the following extension

It might not be a real A HREF link, but an element that has an onclick handler attached. You can check this via the right-click context menu in the Inspector (look for an 'event' label).

That extension doesn't seem to offer shortcuts to select buttons quickly.

You're right! I guess then it might be easiest for me to use greasemonkey to rewrite all buttons as links, as I guess I could directly copy the associated event handlers.
