Keyconfig for Firefox

KeyConfig for Firefox lets you rebind your keys and shortcut keys. If you’re wondering where keyconfig for Firefox went, you can stop looking. I searched for a while and then realized that, to the best of my knowledge, it’s not in the Mozilla Extensions directory / repo. Here’s the keyconfig for Firefox that I’m used to: I’m using Keyconfig on Firefox 3, Firefox 4, and Firefox 5 and it seems to be working fine. You can Install Keyconfig for Firefox by clicking on the .xpi file. Documentation is available here Release notes are available here About Keyconfig keyconfig allows you to change keyboard shortcuts. Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and any other XULRunner Application keyconfig adds the ability to create new or modify existing shortcuts defined by aelement, but only changing those which itself call a function (those with a command or oncommand attribute) has an effect (all others fulfill only cosmetic purposes it seems and are grayed out). The configuration screen can be accessed via Tools > Keyconfig (in most Applications), the Add-ons Manager, or Ctrl+Shift+F12 (Command+Shift+F12 on MacOS) from the main window. Currently there is only one list of modified keys per application, so changing a shortcut in one window will also affect other windows if they use the same key name. In the Mozilla Addons Search, you Martin Petricek, but that addon looks like it still needs some work as the comments say it’s buggy, and it apparently does not work for Fire Fox 5.

greasemonkey – google images relinker (v 2.0)

I really like the google image relinker script for greasemonkey, but sometimes when there’s a hotlink protection or something else funky, you just want the original google images link. i updated this greasemonkey image re-linker script so that it relinks the images, but also provides links to open the original link (both in a new tab, and in a new window) Download the script: google_image_relinker_v2_00.user.js.txt (rename to just .js) google_image_relinker_v2_00.user.js (right click and save as) Greasemonkey scripts can be used with chrome or firefox

Open with PTTL – Firefox 3.5+ (Plain Text to Link)

I love the Open PTTL firefox extension, but recently upgraded to Firefox 3.5. One of the add-ons which broke was the “Plain Text to Link” addon. I took a look at the Mozilla Addons page and this is the author’s only extension. And it hasn’t been updated since July 2008. I took a quick look at the code and it seemed pretty simple – and it looks like everything will work fine with Firefox 3, so I’ve edited the install requirements to allow installing on up to Firefox 3.5.* The old extension file was named plain_text_to_link-1.5.20080618-fx.xpi I’ve called the new one plain_text_to_link-1.6.20100125-fx.xpi You probably need to download it to your computer and then drag the xpi file on top of firefox to install :)
