Shortcut Keys on Firefox 2

To those who have upgraded their Mozilla Firefox 1.5 to Firefox 2, you will found that the shortcut keys are a bit messed up. This is especially for bulletin board users - who are used to the “Alt-S” shortcut key to submit their reply. I’m one of those too who are used to the “Alt-S” key, and now it can’t be used to reply post anymore - but open the history tab instead.
The old “Alt-S” shortcut key has been changed to “Alt-Shift-S” - so you can use “Alt-Shift-S” to replace to “Alt-S” shortcfut key. But if you are still not happy with it and would want back the Alt-S’s old function, you can do this by editing the config. Follow the steps below.

  1. Goto “about:config”. (Do this like going to a normal website)
  2. On the config page, find ui.key.chromeAccess and ui.key.contentAccess
  3. Modify ui.key.chromeAccess to 5
  4. Modify ui.key.contentAccess to 4

If you have done all these steps correctly, you should now be able to use "Alt-S" to submit post in forums. Please do follow the instruction very carefully, and make sure you understand it before making any modification. This is to avoid any misconfiguration that may lead to errors.

For more information, you can visit the MozillaZine forum at - where this matter is discussed. Start a new thread in MozillaZine if you have further doubts on the Firefox 2 shortcut keys. By following the steps above, it doesn't mean all shortcut keys will be the same like it is in Firefox 1.5.
