Specific keyboard shortcuts in Oracle do not work.

Posted

The shortcuts 'ctrl+alt+v' and 'ctrl+alt+t' are not working in Oracle when using the current version of Firefox. They do work in older versions as well as in other browsers. Already checked the page info to allow 'Override browser shortcuts' but it's still not working.

Is this a known issue or is there anything I miss?

Hi Anna, what do those keyboard shortcuts do in Oracle?

Do you recall the last version of Firefox where they worked?

Do any of your extensions intercept those shortcuts? You can check using the steps in this article: Manage extension shortcuts in Firefox.

There were some changes in Firefox 65 and 66 affecting popular web apps that used older code to intercept keyboard shortcuts. For affected sites, adding the host name to one of these preferences in about:config may resolve the issue:

  • dom.keyboardevent.keypress.hack.dispatch_non_printable_keys (for changes made in Firefox 65)
  • dom.keyboardevent.keypress.hack.use_legacy_keycode_and_charcode (for changes made in Firefox 66)
