macOS Command-Enter instead of Control-Enter

Posted

Firefox 64 changed the URL completion mapping on macOS from Command+Enter to Control+Enter, to match the mapping across all operating systems. I want to change the mapping back to Command+Enter on my Mac and I am unable to find the setting in about:config to change it. Can you tell me if there's a way to change it back?

There is currently no way to change this back as far as I know. There might be support coming for a WebExtension to modify these keys.

This change is the result of this old bug that landed in Firefox 64.

  • Bug 237027 - Use ctrl-enter for URL canonization on all platform, and offer an opt-out for Windows/Linux users where it interferes with opening URLs in (background) tabs

I think that the relevant code is here:

Fixup code:

There is this pref to define Ctrl behavior.

  • browser.urlbar.ctrlCanonizesURLs
