JIRA's keyboard shortcuts cause my comments to be lost during editing, or accidentally/prematurely submitted, on Firefox 3.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.5.5 !
I would simply like all of these keyboard shortcuts turned off, as a per-user or per-site preference - I don't mind as long as they are off.
The following keyboard shortcuts for editing text, predate JIRA by a very very long way, and at least the ones below should be considered sacred:
They work perfectly well in textareas and input fields in Firefox on any normal website, and are familiar shortcuts in bash, Emacs. They all function in TextEdit and other standard-respecting Mac apps too.
C-a beginning of line
C-e end of line
C-f forward char
C-b backward char
C-d delete char
C-k kill the text from point to the end of the line.
JIRA disrespects many of these. Inconsistently, Ctrl+S submits any form in JIRA, while on the docs page below, you have, more logically and less destructively, the accesskey="s" for the search form.
accesskeys like 's' to change the focus to another form field on the page are nice, "shortcuts" that take you to other pages and lose your edits, while pressing formerly functional keys like Ctrl-a, are really not!
Thanks everyone for the greasemonkey workarounds, but I really want a fix where JIRA doesn't disrespect well established, standard, functional keyboard shortcuts.
This is a Major PITA, not a Minor one as prioritised. Thanks.
