    Recently I updated to Firefox 3 RC1, and now I am unable to setup a keyboard shortcut for homepage. It worked fine with Firefox Beta 5

    I am using ctrl H through Mas OS X keayboard shortcuts for Firefox History Home menu.

    Anybody has been able to make it work?

    thanks

    Didn't work for me either. Any reason you don't want to use Firefox's default key combo of Option+Home?

    Well I am on a macbook .. and there is no Home key.

    And as I see in my Firefox installation, there is no default keyboard shortcut associated to Homepage. That's why I decided to setup one by myself

    It doesn't work for any shortcut that you change

    It is quite frustrating actually. None of the shortcuts that you change works. I use ^T for new Tab and ^W for close tab. They have stopped working since RC1.

    RC2 doesn't correct the bug.

    I use OSX Keyboard shortcuts

    Application: Firefox
    Menu Title: Home
    Keyboard Shortcut: ^H ... or anything else


    It worked very vell with Firefox 2, and Firefox 3 beat5, Broken since RC1

    On the MacBook, you can use Fn-Opt-LeftArrow.

    I just installed the released Firefox 3.0, and it exhibits the bug. I had defined Cmd-. to go to the home page. When I press it, the History entry in the menu bar lights up briefly, but nothing happens.

    However, Opt-Home is the official shortcut, and it continues to work. You just have to know that Fn-LeftArrow is Home on the MacBook keyboard.

    Same here, tried to remap 'Find Again' but didn't work.

    The reactions on Firefox' Bugzilla don't sound very promising though. I guess I have to get used to cmd-G

    Josh mentioned an addon would solve the problem.

    And yes, for the reasoning behind it, im glad they patched more severe bug, thats always good.
