As most of you may know, when you're typing in some forums and you want to bold your text, you can just hit Ctrl+B as a shortcut on your keyboard. I used to do this all the time, but now it's not working. I first started with Google Chrome, and I thought it was the browser but then I switched to Firefox and it still doesn't work! What it does is it pops up the bookmark manager (for Firefox) or the bookmarks toolbar (for Chrome)

When I hit Alt+Ctrl+B, as someone suggested to me before, it just puts the BB codes but doesn't automatically do it for me. I don't know how to explain it further but if you guys get this please help cause this is annoying me lol. Thanks.

EDIT - Nevermind! It is just not working for Chrome. I think it's working on Firefox now, but I still prefer Chrome over FF so if anyone can help me with that I'd greatly appreciate it! (Please move this thread)

In Google Chrome Ctrl+B toggles the bookmarks bar on and off and Ctrl+Shift+B opens the Bookmark manager.

AFAIK, no. It's designed that way, (built into the program).
