After installing Panic Button, add the Panic Button button to the browser toolbar by choosing View → Toolbars → Customize on the Firefox menu bar, and then dragging the Panic Button to the desired location.
Panic Button also introduces a few additional shortcut keys for the browser window. The shortcut keys are summarized in the following table.
Note that pressing CTRL+Q will function the same as if File → Exit was selected from the browser menu bar.
You can change the shortcut key bindings using a Firefox extension called KeyConfig.
- The Restore key binding (ALT+F5) conflicts with a system-wide shortcut key on KDE that displays the desktop window list (bug 18411).
