When you hover your mouse over the buttons in Quick Reply, it comes up with the following:

"Alt + S" for Post Quick Reply and "Alt + X" for Go Advanced

Do these only work in IE? I can't seem to get them to work in Firefox.


Also, PCWii's "Find" image (find.gif) in the Members List appears to have disappeared.

Apparently those shortcuts do actually work if you're using Internet Explorer; I never knew that.

I suppose it's too bad I switched over to Firefox a while back.

So, like, I'm testing if Alt+S works in Opera to submit this post in Quick Reply.

Nope, Alt+S in Opera opens the RSS Feeds menu in the navigation toolbar. =/

I guess vBulletin only programed it for IE. Anyway how much of a difference would clicking a butting make to making a shortcut on the Computer.

Yeah, it doesn't work on my Firefox or Safari.
Yet it works on my Explorer. Strange though isn't it?

If you're looking for a quick way to send the reply without using the mouse, you could always just tab+enter. Tab brings the focus down to "Post Quick Reply" and enter obviously sends it. I use it when I'm lazy and it doesn't matter what browser you may have. :P

Lighting got a point there and meh a mouse click away and complaining about it seems a bit lazy.

it works in safari too (and most probably other webkit based browsers too)

Actually, Internet Explorer is the only (recent) browser that maintains these shortcuts.

Firefox (and some versions of Safari) have removed the shortcuts. (They worked in Firefox 2.0, keep in mind.)

Incorrect. Browsers with an updated version of WebKit (read: Chrome 2.0) will no longer parse keyboard shortcuts.

My mistake, thanks for the correction about Chrome, however I know safari works, as I've used these shortcuts in Safari 4.

This shortcut also works in Google Chrome.
