Does this work? I rather feel that it should display output when I
press "Ctrl+Shift+C" but .. it doesn't. To be safest, I tried this in
Firefox 3.6, GM 0.8. I keep going back and forth over whether I think
this feature ever worked. I thought it didn't for a long while, then I
did, now .. not so much again. I've tweaked the accelKey and the
modifiers to other values and I can't make it work at all anymore.
A test that functions correctly in 3.6+0.8 would be a good starting
point, or else I'm likely to start pulling my hair out.
So, when I wrote
I had thought for quite some time that they never worked, and barely
gave a second thought to breaking them. I did reconsider it, however,
and threw together a quick test. When it worked I filed
https://github.com/greasemonkey/greasemonkey/issues#issue/1312 (Mar 16?)
-- then, and as pointed out earlier, I couldn't get them to work
anymore. Now I tried again, and they do -- kinda.
I'm seeing the same sort of problems as I was having with my re-written
version. Once a key works, loading pages or switching tabs has no
effect, that key is stuck, it won't run on another page. Closing the
tab that it's working for breaks it (forever I think, for all other tabs).
Again, this is 3.6 (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US;
rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20110319 Firefox/3.6.16) + 0.8 (0.8.20100408.6). I
really don't like ruining backwards compatibility. But if it was always
broken, I'm less worried about breaking (/removing) a broken feature.
That all said, they're both open:
for accelerator keys, and
for the menu commands themselves.
