- Mozedit can be run in two different editing modes: an emacs compatible keyboard shortcuts mode and a more typical
default mode. The mode can be switched under options. Mozedit will need to be restarted after switching modes.
- Keyboard shortcuts are available for the most common standard tags such as bold and anchor links. To insert a HTML tag select the text and select an option from the Tags menu or enter the keyboard shortcut.
Editing Chrome/Content files
- Mozedit allows quick access to the Mozilla userChrome, userContent, and user preferences files. If a file does not exist you will be given the opportunity to create a new file. A list of Mozilla Firebird tweeks can be found at texturizer.net.
- The built-in browser preview in Mozedit will attempt to render any opened text file as HTML. This feature can be disabled
under Options if HTML rendering is not needed. To remove the tediousness of manually refreshing the browser preview, the browser can be set to automatically refresh from 1 to 10 seconds under Options.
- Mozedit allows the parsing of PHP, JSP and ASP files by setting the browser preview to an alternate server pass-thru path. This feature can be enabled under options.
- The Execute bar can be made visible by selecting the Execute option under the View menu. The keyboard shorcuts for execute are Alt-x (M-x). The characters s$ refer to the current file opened. For example, to open KDE's editor and edit the current file in Mozedit, you could enter "/usr/bin/kate s$".
- The Browser, Sidebar and Symbols panes support right-click context menu options. The Browser provides context options for refresh, copy, forward and back (history).
