Firefox's non-Mac background shows
Authored by: Krioni on Jan 24, '05 02:21:53PM

I'm glad Firefox exists, and I use it now and then, but I find its lack of Mac OS X standard behavior annoying. Basic example: when in the URL field (or any field), pushing the up arrow does not move to the beginning of the line - it does nothing. This makes me crazy on Windows (when I have to use it) - I don't like having it happen on a Mac.

I'm cheering for Firefox, but I use (and paid for) OmniWeb. I spend a lot of time on the web - having a web browser that saves me time and makes me more productive is worth $30.

The cripled text field navigation is the single thing that I despise about Firefox, and may be the one thing keeping my wife from moving to it from Mozilla - though Mozilla now appears to have picked up that afflictions too...

Yeah, the lack of up-and-down-arrow support is also what annoys me most about Firefox. The other thing that gets on my nerves is clicking and dragging text; in OSX you have to click and pause over selected text, and then it drags a nice outline of what you selected. If you pause with FF, however, it'll deselect the text. Instead you have to drag selected text immediately. It's definitely hard to go back and forth. Still, nothing else seems to have Firefox's variety of extensions for things like adblocking, mouse gestures, and tab enhancements. I hope the Mac developers fix the interface issues though, unless someone knows of an extension or something that'd help?
