Anyway, oftentimes I want to page down or search within the main web page pane of the window. The annoying thing is there's no reliable way to focus the main window short of clicking it with the mouse. Tab will cycle through but you're never sure if you've got focus, there's no visual indication (which would be nice too). I love how you can press Ctrl-L to reliably get to the location bar. There should be another simple shortcut that gives the main window focus. It should *not* focus on a form field but on the page itself. Focusing on the first form field is a separate operation; it would mean anytime the page has a form field (which is often) I'd still be stuck with clicking. Thanks for your work on free software. Cheers, Matthew. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
this does not make sense
this makes some sense, but we don't have the keyboard shortcuts to spare for something as low on the radar as this. Maybe an extension could do something like this, but given that with the sidebar closed, I can focus the content area in two presses of TAB from the address bar, this is certainly no major usability win, and would be taking one of the few remaining shortcut keys.
