Firefox – Can each Firefox tab have its own keyboard layout / language


In Internet Explorer, when I switch my keyboard language in a tab, it doesn't affect other tabs that are already open (i.e., they retain their original kbd languages). Can I achieve the same in Firefox? Currently, when I switch the keyboard language in FF, it changes in all tabs.

  • Please have a look at TabLang.

    Allows you to keep separate keyboard layout for each tab and automatically changes system input locale when switching between tabs or windows - the feature Firefox lacks in comparison with Internet Explorer.


    • Changing keyboard layout when switching between tabs/windows (including sidebars)
    • Configurable default keyboard layout for new tabs/windows
    • Opening link in new tab/window preserves keyboard layout
    • Preserving independent keyboard layout for address bar globally or on pre-tab basis
    • Preserving independent keyboard layout for web search bar and page find bar
    • Session restore support
    • Undo close tab, tab drag-n-drop and tear-off support
    • Panorama (tab grouping) support
