Hi all,

Firefox version 79.0 does not allot me to use the keyboard shortcut ctrl + \ with 1Password extension or 1PasswordX add on.

I originally contacted 1Password about this and they say it is an issue with Firefox and that i will just have to use a different key combination.

Is there any help that anyone can offer on this?

I assume you have been using the screen described in the following article to try to set the shortcut and it hasn't worked: Manage extension shortcuts in Firefox.

I don't think you can use \ in a keyboard shortcut for an extension function -- I assume you are limited to the same keys extension developers can choose from:

Maybe one of the others will be an acceptable choice?

One possible workaround is to use an external hotkey program that translates the keystrokes from


to whatever you define in Firefox. Not sure whether that would work.

Thanks for you help and recommendation. I'll suck it up and learn a new shortcut :)
