Thanks for that.

Also I did some checking. Opera allow remapping of UI keyboard controls and
also mouse gestures.

Subject: Off Topic: Search in Firefox

 

Hello,

 

At today's UA meeting there was some off topic discussion about the search
box in Firefox.  From what I can tell alt+down or up arrow when focus is in
the search box will bring up a list of search engines you can choose from
and the option to manage your search providers.  As I mentioned in the call,
in IE ctrl+down arrow does this same function.  Ctrl+up or down arrow in
Firefox seems to switch to the next or previous search provider in yo8ur
list directly.
