Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Browser: Firefox Quantum 60.0 (64-bit)
I usually use the Alt + Numpad plus – Unicode method to enter Unicode characters. But this method doesn't always work in Firefox. Sometimes the hex code I need to type overlaps with some Firefox shortcut key. For example, I can't introduce the letter ð because its hex code is 00F0 and when I get to the F, Firefox interprets the fact that both Alt and F are being pressed as a command to open the File menu.
The following Firefox keyboard shortcuts interfere with my typing:
- Alt + Numpad 2 and Alt + B open the Bookmark menu
- Alt + Numpad 5 and Alt + E open the Edit menu
- Alt + Numpad 6 and Alt + F open the File menu
- Alt + D selects the address bar
How do I get around these Firefox hotkeys so I can enter any Unicode character I want?
This is what I have tried and found that it doesn't work:
- How to disable all keyboard shortcuts for Firefox?
- Customizing Firefox keyboard shortcuts
- Key config
EDIT: I am interested in a solution that does not require AutoHotkey or other third party software.
