A keyboard shortcut for the back button history

Publié

I would like to be able to open tab history (a drop-down that appears when right-clicking the back button) using a keyboard shortcut, Alt+Down for example. I think it's possible to add a custom shortcut using Surfingkeys extension, but I need a piece of code that invokes the drop-down. Would you be able to provide the code, or suggest an alternative for achieving what I'm after.

You can reach this button via the Tab key, but this would require a lot of key presses.

  1. Alt + D or Ctrl + L to set focus to the location/address bar.
  2. press Shift+Tab until you see a focus ring around one of the B/F button.
  3. press the context menu button that you find in the block next to the Space bar to open the drop-down list.

Cor-el, thank you for your time. I do have a mouse though, and I will definitely use it if the alternative is a lot of key presses (I did try the way you suggest, and it took me about a dozen of them. It's a step in the right direction, for sure, that this was made possible at all, and enabled in Fx 69.)

I think that in Firefox 70 you can use access keys to go to a specific button by pressing its first letters, so try to set focus to the location bar (Alt+D or Ctrl+L) and press the Tab key once to get the focus ring, then press 'BA' to go to the Back button and 'FO' to go to the Forward button.

I've already moved the back button to behind the address bar, so it's Alt+D,Tab,Tab,Context. Still too much. When I said "alternative", I meant "some way to have a *keyboard shortcut*", not just any workaround. Thank you.
