I would be great we could edit fast keys (like Ctrl-T) to what we want (back
page, next page, reload, etc...) and even put it on mouse like midlle button
mouse and extra buttons (like for my microsoft IntelliMouse) that already have
strange functions in firefox.

Reproducible: Always

This is possible by editing source files (in
chrome\en-US.jar\locale\en-US\browser\browser.dtd) but there is no UI for it.

I don't think this has any chance of being implemented but I'll confirm the RFE
as I can't find any dupes.

Bug 57805 is the same bug for Seamonkey.

Sounds like a nice extension.

Future, planned for Firefox 1.5/2.0

the keyconfig extension does the job.but not for mouse,just for keyboard.some
other extensions perform the mouse part incompletely e.g. tab mix allows you to
shift-click a tab to perform a specific action.should be left as extension,i think.

I work for a computer security and antivirus company on the east coast. I need to be able to customize my shortcuts uniformly across all programs (Kate, Kmail, KDE, etc) for efficiency but I can't configure your shortcut keys to match the others. I like FireFox better than Konquerer internet browser but this is a major drawback for me. Please bring your product in line with others.

Thank you.

dupe of bug 57805 (which is in Core now) ?

No, front-end changes are not Core bugs. It may depend on that bug for the back end work, though.

Mark, is there anything here the "keyconfig" extension doesn't do?

If not, let's close this as WONTFIX
Comment 13 Miernik 2007-02-11 08:35:14 PST
There are many keys which I haven't found a way to customize through keyconfig extension. For example I would like to rebind "move focus to next link" from Tab to A (like in Opera), and "move focus to previos link" from Shift+Tab to Q.
