He is a web developer, he has experience with firefox enough to know it's faults, and I think his opinion here might really give some insight on what prevents a technical person from adopting firefox and sticking with alternatives(i.e. opera). I'm going to take these on a point by point basis, and if you're bored you can separate them or whatever: <morgajelWork> what do you want to customize? <cam[home]> like keyboard shortcuts, tabbed windows, searching from the address bar, etc There is no simple way that I've found in the Firefox help or via google to set custom Key bindings. The key bindings are there, it's just a matter of letting users customize them. perhaps an about:keyboard interface would work? <cam[home]> I want to move the address bar to the bottom of the window too While we can mangle the layout of the top of the screen, there doesn't appear to be a way to dock toolbars below the main display. I know this doesn't seem important, but it seems like a semi-trivial job. <cam[home]> morgajelWork: I want to configure shortcuts in the address bar too, so I can type 'g phool' and it will search google or 'i riddick' and it will search imdb This might be better served as an extension, but some sort of address bar customizable shorthand could prove useful. <cam[home]> ability to automatically reload a page every n seconds/minute Another one that would probably make a good extension. <cam[home]> ability to do real full-screen without toolbars or anything <cam[home]> yea, f11 in firefox still leaves teh address bar, tab bar, and scroll bar This one should be an option under the full screen controls, perhaps in about:config? <cam[home]> predictive forward, if you're viewing images all named in the same sequence Opera guesses which file is next and takes you to it As you can see he's an opera user, but this would be a nice feature to make firefox *appear* faster and more responsive. All of these are just food for thought though. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Everything listed here, except perhaps the "predictive forward" and "real" fullscreen is available either in Firefox itself or as extensions. Ask/talk about that in Firefox forums: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=7 Bugzilla is not a forum. Feature requests should be filed separately and after searching it first. ->invalid (you may file different parts of it in different bugs, but I advice you to search google/forums and/or start a forum thread instead).
