Firefox Annoyance
November 26, 2005 8:45 AM   Subscribe

I'm forced to use IE at work. Of course I use Firefox at home. My fingers automatically type Alt-A to get my IE fAvorites dropdown list, but Firefox uses Alt-B for Bookmarks.

Is there a simple way to add Alt-A to Firefox, as an alternative way to invoke Alt-B?

not sure how much of a 1337 hax0r you are, but this page gives you an overview over which files contain the key bindings, and how to add/edit them.

An extension to the rescue! (Would you expect anything else?)

I can't find any quick way to customize the keyboard shortcuts, but if you can retrain yourself to use ctrl-i, that will open bookmarks in both browsers.

AutoHotkey will do anything.

There is also an extension called PlainOldFavorites which adds a Favorites menu to your Firefox that actually uses the IE favorites. I prefer this, because I am always using that favorites menu from the start menu and I like being able to add to THAT favorites list as opposed to Firefoxes Bookmarks folder.
