Hi, I am using Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. I added into System settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts this keys: COPY CTRL + C CUT CTRL + X etc. I am also using a window keyboard. This shortcuts work on all apps. With my keyboard I am also able to use the "home", "end", "Page Up" and "Page Down" keys in all the apps.

All the apps except for firefox. In firefox none of this shortcuts and keys work. If I go to Firefox -> Edit I can see that the function copy etc are all associated with CTRL + C etc shortcuts. In addition if I do CTRL+C I can notice that the Edit menù entry get highlighted. What's the problem? I have also tried to restart my laptop but nothing happened

Shift+Enter and Shift+Ctrl+Enter navigation stopped working

Firefox updated itself to version 64, and now instead of shift+enter or ctrl+shift+enter causing it to navigate to the address bar contents surrounded with www. and either .net or .org, both combinations open a new window which then navigates to whatever was already there with nothing added on. That is - if I put "test" into the address bar and hit shift+enter, I no longer navigate to "www.test.net," but instead get a new additional FF window that immediately searches my search provider for "test." Was this functionality broken in this version, or is there just some new option I need to change to get that behavior back?

Hi. I'm not sure when it happened, because I usually leave Firefox update itself automatically.

I like to use ctrl+enter to complete .com URL, shift+enter to complete .net URL, and ctrl+shift+enter to complete .org URL, and add alt key to these hotkeys to open it on separate window. Only ctrl+enter seem to work and shift+enter was replaced to searching on default search engine on separate window. But I do it by doing alt+enter.

What are the new hotkeys and how do I change them back?

UN-ZOOM the browser (Mac)

Hello.

A lot of times, I will accidentally 'blow-up' the browser to full-screen size while moving the mouse around, equal to intentionally hitting the 'green' traffic light circled button, or using the Firefox pull-down menu 'WINDOW > ZOOM.'

This is a hassle in Mac when done accidentally, because then I have to make the tom menu bar appear by swiping down and up, then manually drag the corner of the active window to reduce the window size. It also upsets my pre-set, preferred size of the window (critical for professional film/tv editors who usually work on dual, 24 to 30-inch screens; where a full Firefox window is way too big for e-mails, surfing the web, and other tasks).

I can't believe there is no "Un-zoom" keystroke (way easier than mousing to a pull-down menu) to return the Firefox window to the size I had set it to!

Please consider adding this.

Thank you for your valuable time!

I was wondering if firefox has something similar? I used element picker on uBlock origin way too much for me to just abandon it. Someone please tell me I am able to create one.

Why in PL version you've changed shortcut in context menu (for links) "Kopiuj Adres odnośnika" from "K" to "A? Now A is duplicated and not working immediately.

It used to be "K". I could right-click on a link and simply press "K" on keyboard to add link to clipboard or let the other software grab the link. Now it's "A" and it's … (read more)

It used to be "K". I could right-click on a link and simply press "K" on keyboard to add link to clipboard or let the other software grab the link. Now it's "A" and it's duplicated in context menu so it is not working that way I have to click with mouse it anyway. And it seems "K" is not in use anyway.

I know it's "first world" problem but it's very frustrating for me.

Would be good if you could restore it.

Can I disable a keyboard shortcut that is interfering with typing?

I use a lot of UNICODE characters when typing on several sites. I enabled the hex numpad through a registry key as described here: (https://superuser.com/questions/47420/… (read more)

I use a lot of UNICODE characters when typing on several sites. I enabled the hex numpad through a registry key as described here: (https://superuser.com/questions/47420/insert-unicode-characters-via-the-keyboard) and so far it has worked fine with firefox. However when trying to type "Alt+14B" for the character "ŋ", firefox defaults to opening the bookmarks tab from the menu bar (which is the shortcut Alt + B in firefox). The B overrides the previous characters and firefox treats it as a shortcut instead of a unicode entry. Alt toggles the menu bar, but only if let go before a valid unicode is recognized. So i can write a schwa "ə" by typing "Alt(plus sign)259" but not "ŋ" (pasted here). Is there any way I can disable the ALT menu bar shortcut?

For ages now I've used Firefox and to save time as i swap pages a lot doing hobbiest web development and such, I use ctrl+e. Recently, like tonight recently whenever I do control+e it's started putting ? before it. Whenever this happens any domain I enter is searched. It may be a minor thing but it seriously annoys me that this started happening. It's one of the main things I hate about MS Edge! Is there any way to stop/fix this so I can just go back to my normal lifestyle? Thanks in advance - Steve
