Firefox - Latest Beta - Welsh Locale. Keyboard shortcut cmd+c is assigned to two actions - "Copy" and "Save Page As...".

Posted

In the latest version of Firefox (beta) using the Welsh language locale, the "Save Page As..." keyboard shortcut has been redefined to cmd+c. Obviously this clashes with the keyboard shortcut for "Copy". As such, whenever I highlight text and click cmd+c, rather than copy it, the Save Page As... prompt comes up.

Please could the keyboard shortcut for "Save Page As..." be changed ASAP?

This was fixed for a while. However in Firefox 37 now it is even worse than before.

E.g., cmd+c is assigned to Save page as... cmd+a is assigned to Print cmd+p is assigned to select all cmd+f is assigned to Open file... cmd+o is assigned to Bookmark this page cmd+n is assigned to both New window and Bookmarks etc

Since I use keyboard shortcuts all the time, Firefox has become unusable for me in my language and I have to set Firefox in another language.

Please can this be sorted out.

You could install the en-US version and download and modify the Welch language pack to repair the shortcuts and set the locale manually in general.useragent.locale Language packs come as an XPI file that is a ZIP archive and can be opened in an archive manager.

You can file a bug report in:

  • Product: Mozilla Localizations
