Can this be done without keyconfig?
Authored by: palahala on Mar 28, '09 07:06:44AM
Does anyone know how to do this WITHOUT using the keyconfig program.

On my quest to find the keyconfig solution, I read that some people use keyfixer instead, which patches some keymapping files. I don't recall if I tried that, but today it actually seems more difficult to me.

On Hackzines.com (now part of makezine.com) you can read about using DefaultKeyBinding.dict, but that did not work for me.

Correction to the above comment about keyfixer: there's a more recent blog post on Heisencoder that describes version 0.4.x, which is in fact a Firefox and Thunderbird add-on now.

I have not used it; please let us know if it works for you!

And meanwhile the author of keyfixer has replied to be using keyconfig rather than keyfixer to fix the Cmd-Left issue:
I confirmed that TinyMCE still has the Cmd-Left problem, and I've been personally using keyconfig to fix it. I don't think that the approach used by keyfixer (i.e., modifying the platformHTMLBindings.xml file) can fix this.

Thanks for your input. I would really like to find a solution that doesn't use keyconfig simply because I do not feel comfortable with it Not being available from the Firefox Add-Ons page (on there, it hasn't been updated since Jan. 2007). For now, I have just set text areas to plain text (where possible) and try really hard to remember to NOT press Command Arrows in DHTML editors (e.g. TinyMCE).
