Using Ctrl+Rt arrow usually skips words when typing in a free text box but FF uses that keyboard command to move through the open tabs. Is this customizable?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== typing in a text field

Hi Toy4Rick, The keyboard shortcut to move to the next tab is actually Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+PageDown. See this article for more information: Keyboard shortcuts - Perform common Firefox tasks quickly.

Do you have any tabs related add-on that might cause the keyboard shortcuts to change? Do you have any application for global hotkeys etc?

Let us know what you find.

I suppose you're talking about Ctrl+Left/Right Arrow when jumping over words in text boxes. This should work in any Windows application.

It does in other windows apps, in FF that key combo is used to move between open tabs. Can this be changed?

on the Keyboard Shortcuts page, under the Windows & Tabs section, it says that CTRL + LEFT ARROW (or RIGHT ARROW) will navigate between tabs. this means that when you are in a text box (e.g. typing an email in a web based email provider like gmail, or in the box i am typing this reply in right now) when you press CTRL + L/R ARROW it changes tabs instead of skipping words. so basically firefox is overriding ability to skip words using CTRL + L/R ARROW. this is rather annoying when typing emails using firefox. i have resorted to typing my emails in a word processor, then pasting into gmail.

is there a way to disable the CTRL + L/R ARROW shortcut in firefox? it seems redundant to even have that shortcut because CTRL + PGUP/PGDN already does this.

i did find this page on the ubuntu forums with a user experiencing the same issue. one user suggested the following (quoted below), but it didnt work for me because the setting was already set to true.

QUOTE FROM UBUNTU FORUMS: In firefox, type about:config in the adress bar and change layout.word_select.stop_at_punctuation to True

cor-el, thank you for correcting me.

for anyone who happens to be watching this thread:

the issue was caused by the Tab Utilities extension. under Tools / Tab Utilities Options / Focus New Tabs From, i chose "none", clicked apply, and all is well.
