QuickD: Ctrl-Q - 92 views

feature keyboard quickd shortcut

    Recently, the Diigo toolbar seems to have claimed Ctrl-Q for its own use to QuickD bookmark the current site. I use Ctrl-Q to quit Firefox, so this is a bit of an intrusion. I don't see any way to change or disable this part of the Diigo toolbar, nor do I see a way for Firefox to map keys.

    How can I reclaim my Ctrl-Q keychord?

    TIA;

    Thanks for pointing this out. We will discuss here to see how to make that an optional setting.

    Wow, quick response! Thanks for your time and attention. I appreciate it. Hopefully this can be resolved to everyone's satisfaction.

    Hi Maggie,

    I would also like to add a suggestion (thanks for putting in a keyboard shortcut by the way); can you make it an optional whether to use QuickD or the standard Diigo bookmarking dialog?

    Thanks
    Brendan

    I too prefer to use Control-Q or some other keyboard shortcut for the standard bookmarking dialog. I prefer to tag my bookmarks right away and would like a shortcut key to access it.

    In the latest toolbar (FF 1.0 2007053100), there is now an option to "disable or enable" QuickD keyboard shortcut.

    Wonderful. I appreciate the relatively quick implementation of this. Thanks!

    Okay, I just noticed that although Ctrl-Q no longer QuickD's (since I unchecked it in my settings), Ctrl-Q is not remapped back to Quit Firefox. Now, pressing Ctrl-Q seems to do nothing. :( How can I get my Quit keychord working again?

    Pistos:
    How do your configure Ctrl-Q as "quiting FF"? According to http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/keyboard, users can't define their own keyboard shortcut. If you use other extension to define your own shortcut, please let us know what it is, then we can find out what happened.

    We cannot reproduce what you're describing.

    How do you set Ctrl-Q to quit FF to start with? That's not a standard FF shortcut.

    Hrm. Well, there must have been some sort of mysterious alteration to my installation of Fx. I'm using Fx 2 under Gentoo Linux, in KDE. I'm pretty sure I wasn't imagining things; I used Ctrl-Q to quit in the past, and you could even see it described in the File Menu to the right of the Quit menu item, just like other shortcuts in the menu.

    But I do see how Ctrl-Q (or any quit shortcut) is not described on that mozilla.org page; ergo I guess I have to just give up and consider myself a unique case. :(

    I guess it's Alt-F | Alt-Q for me. :(

    Thanks for your prompt attention, anyway.

    FWIW, here are a couple of web searches re: Ctrl-Q in Firefox:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=firefox+ctrl-q+quit
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ctrl-q+site%3Amozillazine.org

    It appears that Ctrl-Q used to quit, but then they took it out. :( Ah well.
