What is Pinned Google Drive?
'Pinned Google Drive' is a functional Firefox Add-on that enhances user experience by offering instant access to Google Drive. It works by opening a pinned tab which can be conveniently activated by clicking a button or using the Alt + Shift + D shortcut. This Add-on also has the ability to return to the previous tab with another click or the same keyboard shortcut. A slight change in your browsing behaviour, the add-on changes your default search engine and new tab settings. Originally known as 'GDrive Panel', the add-on has adapted to new WebExtensions, although the panel has to reload each time it's opened.

Summary

Keyboard shortcut: Alt + Shift + D Now configurable!

Formerly "GDrive Panel"

With the new WebExtensions it can't be done everything what the Legacy addons could did. Now the panels are loaded every time they are opened. I think with this, the panel lose all the functionality that had in the past for my addon. For this reason, I decided to use the pinned tabs. Now when the button is clicked a pinned tab will be open (or if you already has it, it will be activated). The same if you use the keyboard shortcut. If you click again, you will return to the previous tab (the same with the keyboard shortcut).

Add-on is changing default search engine and new tab.
