Hi,

Is there any option to add keyboard shortcut feature to built-in translator, so I can quickly enable/disable it? I use it a lot and I switch very often between original page and translation, and clicking every time at the icon in search-bar is a bit troublesome :P

Best regards!

Missing keybindings in official keyboard shortcut overview and firefox itself

Several commands do not have corresponding keybindings. In particular, the ones I'm interested in are "Go one word to the left/right" as shown in the attached image.

Is there a reason why these are left out? Firefox is the only program on MacOS, that I have encountered, where it is impossible to have the caret skip words forward/backwards.

I can use Karabiner-Elements to fix whatever weirdness might exist, but not if Firefox has no way to actually trigger that command, nor a way to rebind keys in order to do so either.

Maybe I've missed something obvious.

PS: Writing this was annoying, exactly for the reason explained. The weird thing is that CTRL+backspace is the only "make key X operate on a whole word instead of a single character" that actually works. For example, "backspace" removes a single character in text edit fields. "ctrl+backspace" would remove the whole word.

PPS: I don't care too much if the modifier key is CTRL or CMD. I can rebind that. I just need it to either be *something*, or that one can set it to *something.

Unable to remove review checker button from search bar

Hello. I was browsing for something on Amazon and I noticed this annoying icon in my search bar as well as a popup asking me to enable some new feature called "Review Checker". I have clicked close, and it appeared again. Then I clicked Not Now. Still I wasn't sure it's completely disabled because the icon in the search bar wasn't gone. I've done extensive search on how to properly disable this feature but I couldn't find a working solution.

For example, there are some config flags suggested here, https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/disable-review-checker/td-p/47370 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1443734

Accordingly, I've set browser.shopping.experience2023, browser.shopping.experience2023.ads.enabled, and browser.shopping.experience2023.enabled to FALSE. I restarted Firefox. However, once I got to the product page on Amazon, I still see the Review Checker button in my search bar. This feels like a bug. Should I submit a bug ticket or is there a way to make it disappear for good?

Hi - I unfortunately had to use Hubstaff tracking software to complete a job. It required me to give it Firefox permissions. I do not recall everything. I do remember that it required Document privelages. It seems a rather intrusive software. I have tried looking through settings to disable permissions and could not find it specifically. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have a magazine e-subscription to Tricycle.org the problem is that, according to Tricycle Tech Support, my pop-up blocker keeps blocking my log-in attempts, and the Tricycle site keeps asking me to subscribe, and their Tech Support team says the probem is on my end and suggests that I disable my pop-up blocker. I'm wondering if mozilla/firefox will permit me to disable the blocker at tricycle.org without interfering with every other thing the blocker is doing? I have Mozilla VPN and Firefox on my Mac laptop. Thanks! -- Jim Dollar
