How can I disable Typeahead for certain urls?

Posted

Is it possible to disable Typeahead on some pages? Typeahead works great 99% of the time but sometimes it interferes with an interface's keyboard shortcuts, therefore an 'exclude' list would be very handy.

A good example is Google Calendar. I want to use the keyboard shortcut to go to 'Today', which is 't'. Instead this kicks Typeahead off, searching for anything that begins with 't'.

Hi, You can not.

What you can do is change focus out of the Address Bar so any Firefox Keyboard Shortcut or the Tab Key or Click some where outside to change focus.

Thanks, that's helpful to know it's not possible at least.

Do you know the best place to suggest this as a feature? Something like Google Calendar is surely a heavily used URL; it makes sense to have an exclude list for Typeahead.
