just like IE, I'd like to have an hotkey (suitable for portable computers with their limited keyboard, and for foreign languages layouts) that switches through open windows.
Why Command+1 and +2 do not do your job?
I use a powerbook with Italian keyboard, so I don't have the numeric pad, and the command 1 key does not work
I see. The same problem applies to Belgium and French keyboards at least. Since command+shift+1 is reserved by MacOS, command+1 is not possible in those keyboard layouts, I suppose. An obvious workaround is switching keyboard layout to other by command+option+space, but that would force a user to switch layout, use command+1, and then switch back the key layout. There is an outstanding bug 53505 that likely solves this specific problem. Adding dependency and modified the summary.(I typed this using Italian layout!)

Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.0
i detect a miscommunication ... i am surprised that cmd-1 does not work for giovanni. it is not necessary that the 1 be a keypad-1. cmd-1 should work fine using the regular 1 on the keyboard. if it doesn't, perhaps this is a bug that cmd-1 doesn't work for an italian keyboard layout. i understand that cmd-1 will cycle open navigator windows one direction, since cmd-shift-1 is indeed reserved. but cmd-1 & cmd-2 should be available as viable workarounds as key-shortcuts until bug 53505 is resolved/implemented.
There is no miscommunication here. I tested myself using Italian kayboard layout as well as French and Belgian. MacOS can switch keyboard layout quite easily. If you set the keyboard layout to Italian, number 1-0 are mapped to uppercase instead of lowercase. Thus, there is no way of making command+1 without pressing the shift key.
we have other bugs requesting more keymap flexibility. this should happen by 1.0 please pick a bug and dupe this against it.
I think this is a duplicate of 53505, unless timeless, did you want it duped against some bug about giving the user a user interface to remap keys for themselves? While that's a good goal, I think this is about having a sensible default. Matthew's design in 53505 (ctrl for frame, option for window and command for app) looks good to me.

i agree with lordpixel and timeless --this really sounds like a dup of bug 53505. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 53505 ***
