For some weird reason the Panorama shortcut key has changed to Ctrl+Shift+E from the default Ctrl+E.. It was fine 2 days ago and i haven't put any new add on or plugin.. Think it happened after it updated to 4.10b..

It may be a solution but it don't wanna put an additional add on.. That is not restoring it to the default.. I wanna know how to get it back to the default Ctrl+E..

Thanks for the reply though.. :)

The default was changed in 4.0b10 to {Ctrl + Shft + E}, so if you want it to be {Ctrl + E} as with 4.0b9, you'll have to install that extension or make your own custom version of Firefox or revert to 4.0b9.

There are a lot of changes in Firefox 4.0 and some have created extensions like for this change, so you either accept such a change or use the extension to revert to the behavior of Firefox 3.6 versions. Another extension (Status-4-Evar) that has been created is for restoring the Status Bar

Actally, there's been a lot of argument about CTRL+E (which previously was the shortcut to the search box), CTRL+SHIFT+E (which is dangerously close to CTRL+SHIFT+W, which closes everything) and others. There are two plug-ins that take care of those shortcuts:

...and I assure you, those are really utterly minimalistic and tiny that you will never know the difference from the "real thing" (which, by the way, is still Javascript)...

What I can't figure out is what was wrong with the original ctrl+space shortcut,it worked and was easy to use:ctrl+shift+E doesn't look much of a shortcut to me,it's easier to use the Panorama button at this point. Are they sparing the former ctrl+space for some other trick?

I just discovered that you can switch between groups using Ctrl + ` and Ctrl + Shift + ` in the same way you would use Ctrl + Tab to switch tabs.
