Dear Firefox users,

How do I make shift-click "save link as..." like it used to? This has annoyed me for some time. ui.key.saveLink.shift is set to true by default, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Yuor best friend,

There's probably some way to do it with keyconfig. Is alt-click not acceptable?

Alt-click is not acceptable; it's how I drag windows around. I actually used to have keyconfig installed to stop backspace from being the back button, but I don't seem to have it anymore. Thanks for the link. I'll see if that can do it.

No problem. I use it in MacOS a lot, since the Mac build's Ctrl-Tab wouldn't cycle through the list (only went "next tab" and wouldn't wrap back around to the first tab in the list) for a long time. I think they fixed that a while ago, though.

does right-click "save link as..." not work?

scottapple raised the same point last night:

scottapple: BTW I actually have a full button on my mouse devoted to the "save-link as" function
scottapple: its called the right mouse button.. you might have one as well... ;-)
kvance: You mean the right mouse button, wait a significant fraction of a second, strain your wrist to hover over the correct menu item, then press another button button?
kvance: I hate that button.
scottapple: heh as I recall it controls your entire desktop interface
