Hi,

Great work so far on the keyboard shortcuts you've sorted out on the page This! I hope you will move them to the current Keyboard shortcuts page. That page also mentions another page where a similar (but less comprehensive) table exists. We should factor all this information into the same place. I think it would be useful to have two views on this data: one "alphabetized" view like the one you've created, and then another "function-oriented" view like that currently on the Keyboard shortcuts page.

I particularly like the way that you've combined keyboard shortcuts from extensions with those for Firefox itself. I've been campaigning for a while for extension editors to create a similar database listing the user interface items they create; then theme authors can style extensions' buttons etc as well as Firefox's own ones, making the browser look much more visually consistent. Your resource lies in a similar vein, and will be very useful to extension authors. --Mozcerize 01:23, 6 Jun 2005 (PDT)

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. The new page looks great, and I've also placed it into Category:Development. I've changed my mind about merging the shortcut pages; I think there's too much information for one page, so better to do as you have done and keep the "developers' view" separate from the "users' view". Now to advertise the new page...! --Mozcerize 00:49, 8 Jun 2005 (PDT)

Thanks. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 19:59, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I've restored one paragraph that mentions differences between Windows and Mac shortcuts. Unfortunately, there's no easy way to tell whether these extensions used "Accel" as the modifier key rather than "Ctrl", so I could only speak in generalities there. (Accel will adapt to the operating system.) – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 00:23, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again. I can't actually install KeyConfig for some reason, so I had to make my best guess about the order. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 03:37, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
