@pathduck said in UI ignores contrast mode and keyboard access (better accessability):
Good keyboard access is important to me, as I've struggled with the pains of carpal tunnel syndrome in the past.
Use this type of mouse, makes a great difference. I know.

@npro said in Keyboard shortcuts for enabling/disabling extension.:
This only works to activate extensions popups, there's no way to disable them (turn them off completely).
Depends on the extension. Some extensions expose parts of their functionality for keyboard shortcut assignment. I'm not at my desk now but from memory, uBlock Origin, uMatrix and Stylus all expose some functionality (such as opening the logger for UBO & UM).
There is a limitation though, the only modifiers that can be used in the shortcut are Alt, Ctrl, Alt-Shift, and Ctrl-Shift.
For the OP's scenario, these 3 also expose an enable/disable action as well, so they can be turned off or on.
@Pesala said in Toggle mouse gestures by keybind:
There is already one to disable keyboard shortcuts.
Note that this still keeps one of the keyboard shortcuts enabled, specifically the one assigned to the "disable keyboard shortcuts" action -- allowing the user to enable all the keyboard shortcuts again. It would follow that a disable mouse gestures action would remain enabled allowing the user to restore them. It has to be available as a mouse gesture just like the disable keyboard shortcut action is available as a keyboard shortcut. You cannot assume the user will be able to use both the keyboard and mouse, it's an accessibility thing.
Putting multiple commands on the same shortcut can make sense, if the commands are context aware (in some contexts command 1 is triggered, in other contexts command 2 is triggered). Not sure if there are any context-limited commands in Vivaldi, though.
@entity said in Behavior of Search-Box when selecting suggestions with keyboard:
This is still/again broken. Now arrow keys are ignored if Num-Lock or Caps-Lock is active.
Ah so it's due to NumLock being active, I see. I couldn't understand why someone else said Down Arrow worked for selecting engine. At least now I know :face_with_stuck-out_tongue_closed_eyes:
With NumLock on you can actually press Shift+Down Arrow to get the history and Tab will select. But it should be Arrow keys. And still can't delete entries with keyboard.
Also I believe the best would be to have Down Arrow to select history, and Shift+Down Arrow to select engine. Because using search history is usually the most common thing done, while selecting active engine is rarer.
