Talk:Keyconfig extension: Firefox

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

I'd propose a simpler layout for these lists:

in MediaWiki:Monobook.css:

div.predefs dl dd {
  /* import the styles for pre */
  font-family: monospace;
  border: 1px dashed #2f6fab;
  color: black; padding: 1em;
  background-color: #f9f9f9;
  line-height: 1.5em;
}

and then in the content:

<div class="predefs"> <!-- wrapper around the entire list -->


;Close current Tab
:var tab = gBrowser.mCurrentTab;
:gBrowser.removeTab(tab);

;Do something else
:var tab = gBrowser.mCurrentTab;
:gBrowser.removeTab(tab);

</div>

I agree. I don't plan to change the stylesheet, but I'll reformat the information along the lines that you suggest...unless someone can come up with a reason not to...

how is this stuff used?

Some hint would be really helpful..

Paste and open in new tab

I think this special section of the wiki is just to geeky to use so here's my tip to add a shortcut to open anything on the clipboard on a new tab

Using Keyconfig I set a shortcut for Paste and open in new tab. This has proven very useful on some forums and sites that post URLs as plain text, I just copy then hit my shortcut and it 's open on a new tab

Here are the steps requiered:

1. clic tools/keyconfig/add a new key/ 
2. give it a name
3. make it global
4. then add this code:  var paste = readFromClipboard();if(!paste) return;gBrowser.selectedTab = gBrowser.addTab(paste)
5. ok
6. assign a key
7. apply
8 .restart firefox

enjoy ;)

You can also remove the "gBrowser.selectedTab = " part and then it just opens in a new background tab. Saves you pressing "F6+CTRL+V+ALT+ENTER". Maybe this tip should also be added to article (Keyconfig_extension:_Firefox)? could be called "Paste to New Tab without Go" or "Paste to New background Tab"
