Tried with the latest mozilla install today. Still am unable to get File Bookmark dialog. Mozilla 1.1a+ Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.1a+) Gecko/20020702 Thanks Ajay Gautam
Is it possible you are running another program that has a global key binding for Ctrl-Shift-D? For example, Trillian has a global hotkey Ctrl-Shift-I that tells the program to go to the next pending event (even while the focus is on another program). However, TextPad and I believe many other text editors, also use Ctrl-Shift-I to reduce a tab indent. Until I disabled the Trillian hotkey, I could never reduce the tab indent when focused on the editor...
> Is it possible you are running another program that has a > global key binding for Ctrl-Shift-D? I don't think so, as nothing happens when I press C-S-D. However, right now, I am using mozilla on XP on my home PC. C-S-D is working right now. I will try again from office. Also will check if anyother software captures it. Thanks Ajay
This is working in Linux (Gentoo) as well. I tried looking in my NT machine, could not find anything that would be capturing CTRL-SHIFT-D. Anything else I could try ? Thanks Ajay Gautam
When I mentioned the Trillian example, I forgot to mention that I had never used its "pending event" feature, so I had no idea those keystrokes were being captured by that program...I kind of discovered it one day serendipitiously while playing around with its preferences. I know you searched for a program that might be capturing the sequence Ctrl+Shirt+D - perhaps it's buried in some program's preferences? Maybe start each program one by one and see which program might be capturing it? Other than that, I'm sorry; that's the only thing I can think of... Good luck :)
using ICQ? see Ctrl+Shift+D
Not using ICQ.
Ajay, are you able to reproduce this on a recent build?
Yes, The build that i am using is 2002100409 and yes, am still not able to get it on this machine (nt). Works fine on my laptop (winxp) at home. Any ideas ? Thanks
Maybe set the keyboard shortcut of a Start Menu item to Ctrl+Shift+D and see what happens when you press C+S+D in Mozilla?
Not set as shortcut in start menu. nothing happens when I press C+S+D anywhere. Tried: In all open windows When no window in selected In the start menu No response to C+S+D anywhere. Got suspecious: may be C+S+... has a problem. Found that C+S+F is linked to web search. Tried it in mozilla. Works fine. So, the keyboard/keys are ok. Any other suggestions ? Thanks Ajay
Ajay, did you ever try to reproduce this with a new profile?
what I meant was that you set the keyboard shortcut of a Start Menu item to Ctrl+Shift+D, then in another application, press Ctrl+Shift+D and see if the item launches, and then in Mozilla do the same thing. If Ctrl+Shift+D doesn't bring up the item in either application, then something is stealing the keystrokes.
> Ajay, did you ever try to reproduce this with a new profile? Not intentionally. My computer (NT) crashed a few weeks back. So, I had to re-install mozilla, which created a brand new profile... Does not work. > ... > what I meant was that you set the keyboard shortcut of a Start > Menu item to Ctrl+Shift+D > ... Wow, I never knew you could do that. Anyway, I tried (but failed) to set the short cut of an application (Leech FTP) to C+S+D. When I press C+S, the short cut window shows "Ctrl + Shift +" The moment I press "D", the text changes back to "None". I am able to set other keys such as C+S+G or C+S+S... Looks fishy :( It does seem like some application is trying to capture that key. Thanks
for documentation purpose, it would be nice to know what is capturing the key...

Ahhhh.... Finally.... Well I found out what was capturing the C+S+D: Palm Desktop Here is how I found out: After typing the last response, I closed all apps, opened task manager, performed "end task" on all tasks. The ones that remained were system "un-end-able" tasks, then I started explorer, tried to set C+S+D as a shortcut: was sucessful :), cancelled the short cut, started mozilla, pressed C+S+D and presto: it worked! I rebooted, started mozilla. Closed 1 app at a time and tested C+S+D, found that after I closed palm desktop, it worked. I started palm again, it stopped working again. So, thats the culprit. Plam is too important to me to give up due to this. I will go and bug those guys now. I did find a work around: Close palm app, set C+S+D as a shortcut to an app, start palm again. remove short cut. Now mozilla work with C+S+D :) However this will only work in cases similar to mine: when I have palm and my desktop running 24/5 :) Thanks a lot to all you guys for helping me find the cause.
