A small request from me


#1

This is a very minor detail but would it be possible to set up the home page so that the cursor is already waiting in the “Flight/Tail #” box please?

When you’re a big user like me it becomes a bit of a chore to be constantly moving the mouse about to manually put the cursor there.

Like I say, very minor detail but would be really useful.

I await my flaming for laziness … :laughing:


#2

Or to have the cursor in the Login box when the page appears. For what I pay for this service, it’s the least they could do! :wink:


#3

If you use Firefox you could create a QuickSearch for that box, so you can type something like “f BOE123” in the address bar and it will take you to flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE123


#4

I’d demand a refund!


#5

Can you create something for IE please? I don’t use (nor like) Firefox.

(and please, no Firefox/IE fanboy replies :unamused: )


#6

What mduell is referring to is built into Firefox. It’s not something they did for Firefox.

am withholding comments re which is the better browser…


#7

Hitting tab once or twice will probably get you there too.


#8

hitting the tab twice is all I need to do to get there…but I am two-handed surfer, so it doesn’t slow me much…


#9

There’s a lot of people out there in the world - MANY of them here in my own office - who think the only way to navigate on a computer is via a mouse. It would behoove those who use a mouse exclusively to actually do some research on keyboard shortcuts. It will save you time and make you more efficient using the computer.

Like Tim, I use th keyboard just as much as I do the mouse.


#10

Gawd, it scares me how much David and I agree on things these days…TC


#11

You’ve seen the light! :smiley:


#12

DAMNIT!! Will you quit doing that? Everytime you agree with David, it gets freaking cold here (Tulsa) and this morning, the ground was literally frozen!


#13

So that’s what it is! FAWHQ didn’t get above 3C today.


#14

Also might explain my “dilemma” discussions.flightaware.com/view … 6400#66400


#15

It’s now snowing in Houston… which prompts an awful lot of SPECIs:

It was 66F here today, flood warning due to rain for tomorrow.

We had two inches of snow last week.
