Firefox Will Soon Support Keyboard Multimedia Keys
The privacy focus web browser Firefox will soon let users control songs and videos playing in their browser using the multimedia keys on their keyboards.
Official support for multimedia keys will be available in Firefox 81, set for release for late September, later this fall.
Firefox 81 will be the first version where Mozilla will turn this feature on, by default; however, Firefox users can also enable it right now, since support for multimedia keys has been secretly available in Firefox since v71, released in December 2019.
To do so, users will have to type and access the about:config settings page in their Firefox browser. Here, they’ll then have to type media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled, and then double-click the option to activate it.
Once done, users will be able to press any of the multimedia keys on their keyboards and control the multimedia content inside Firefox, may it be a song or video.
