How can I stop websites from overriding the keyboard shortcuts in Firefox?
e.g., if you go to Youtube, Ctrl+T no longer opens a new tab, etc.
It there a plug-in that will do that for me?
This is a focus issue....when you click on the flash player, focus is transferred from the browser window to the flash plugin.
This is a page on IBM's website with describes a method of creating a firefox extension that prevents hotkeys from being captured by flash here
Unfortunately, I'm unsure how effective this solution will be. I've seen on various forums people saying that there is no real way to prevent a plugin from grabbing the keyboard completely because of how mozilla handles plugins, and I haven't been inconvenienced enough to try to use the code I mentioned above.
It looks like the most convenient workaround would be MicTech's solution of clicking anywhere except the animation, and then proceeding with the shortcuts.
I think, this is problem with Flash.
If you click on video player on youtube, then short-cuts stop working, but if you click outside video player, then short-cuts start working.
I have same problem, too.
