all keyboard shortcuts seem to be bound to CTRL instead of META/ALT for Mozilla 0.9.9 on Solaris 2.x This SUCK BIG TIME for ALL UNIX users! ====================================== Some reasons why it is a REALLY BAD IDEA to use CTRL for the shortcuts: - with shortcuts bound to CTRL, Mozilla *breaks* everything UNIX users are used to - it also breaks backwards compatibility with any Netscape browser on UNIX - which use Meta/Alt - it breaks EMACS shortcuts which otherwise could be used in the editor e.g. CTRL-p and others.. e.g. CTRL-P is an EMACS binding for "move line up" .. and it's impossible to un-learn that for any EMACS user. It's simply something you expect any decent editor to understand.. but hey, Mozilla thinks it means "print the window content" -- that is an unbeleivably stupid binding! aaargh! Along the same lines: Alt-N and Alt-W don't work anymore!! Mozilla wants CTRL-N and CTRL-W instead - which is very annoying if one is used to the previous shortcuts - different operating systems traditionally use different accelerator keys to do the keyboard shortcuts -- you can't UNDO that, and you should conform to the standard on each platform. if you don't agree, then please make it at least configurable and provide some information on how to change it. thanks
what about this? //(This changes the accelerator key from Ctrl (17) to Alt (18).) user_pref("ui.key.accelKey", 18); //(This changes the menu access key from Alt (18) to none.) user_pref("ui.key.menuAccessKey", 0); also see 'Debug' page in Preferences.

I take everything back .. initially changing the key-bindings didn't seem to work, but after re-starting Mozilla it works! GREAT! now i'm happy.. :) Tilo ------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 2002-04-04 19:24 ------- what about this? //(This changes the accelerator key from Ctrl (17) to Alt (18).) user_pref("ui.key.accelKey", 18); //(This changes the menu access key from Alt (18) to none.) user_pref("ui.key.menuAccessKey", 0); also see 'Debug' page in Preferences.
