The present keyboard shortcut to change between Navigator windows is Cmd-1. However, "1" is very close to "q". Pressing Cmd-q will quit Mozilla (standard for any app on a Mac). So I'm requesting that Cmd-1 be changed, as it is very easy to hit Cmd-q instead.
we can't afford to do this. if you're frequently accidentally hitting the wrong keys, something else will mess you up anyways. we're better off providing you with a confirm dialog for quiting. if we do what you're asking, we'll end up with ~12 keys available on the alpha-keyboard instead of ~40.
I understand. Could a way be set up so I can re-map the keys? If not for the whole keyboard, at least for the 5 listed under the "Task" menu? For example, I don't use "IRC Chat" all that much, so I could re-map the Navigator shortcut to Cmd-3, and vice-versa. Just a request. Thanks.
there's a bug somewhere asking for keyboard customizability. unfortunately it's not coming any time soon. in the interim, if you're willing to customize a jar file (basically a zip) it's not hard to change the numbers (it's just annoying to maintain the change)
Thanks! That's great! Which file should I tinker with?
Ramesh, you can redefine some keys - see this helps: http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html There's a bug somewhere requesting a confirm dialog for quit. I agree with timeless, that's the right way to fix this. This bug can be marked WONTFIX if we find that bug -- I haven't been able to.
Bug 39057 is the bug with the return dialog for quit suggestion, so marking WONTFIX per Aaron's suggestion.
