Feature Request: Hot-keying Navigation-buttons

very useful plugin - thanks a lot!
Though HTML is my preferred format (and firefox my preferred reader) EPUB is rapidly gaining ground; was on the lookout for something like this.

I use it all the time for reading my e-books... the thing is that I prefer to navigate using solely the keyboard, reaching out to click the navigation buttons to move between chapters gets to be a bit of a drag.

If it isn't too much trouble, could you hot-key the navigation buttons? Defaults (or even a permanent assignment) of the left arrow key/page-up for moving to the previous section/chapter and the right arrow key/page-down for moving to the next section/chapter should work well.

I realise that you already have the "use keys to trigger buttons" feature under the scanner for future implementation, so hope this won't be too much trouble!

EDIT: I don't mean "hot-key" in the traditional sense of the word - more like assignment of a key to a button.

Hi Arjun,

thanks for your posting and great that you like EPUBReader !

Like you have written, this feature is already on the change list. Probably it will be a combination of e.g. ctrl+another key. I try to implement it in the next version.

I have just a few other suggestions that would increase accessibility: searching on the library page with CTRL-F, / and ', or at least tab navigation to the save, delete, and read options. A keyboard binding for hiding and expanding the TOC would also be nice; I prefer to read with it hidden, but switching is sometimes needed.

Thanks for your posting, darkmonk!

I will see what I can do. Not everything is possible because possiblities are limited by what Firefox/Gecko allows to do.
