Firefox shortcuts

Firefox shortcuts

As per my promise to give shortcut tips for Firefox in my previous post I am here with a list of shortcut keys and few useful tips that can enhance your Firefox experience.

As always I use these shortcuts to just save the time as gamers save the time to win the game with cheats. Here it’s not like cheat but it’s just a way to save the time. After these shortcuts your life would be very simple but I am not claming at all that these shortcuts will replace your mouse for browsing but I can assure you for this that these shortcuts will give you a different browsing experience that you have never before and your mouse use will reduce by 50 percent.

Firefox is itself a very big tool in itself so I am dividing it in few separate parts.

For starting firefox user windows+r then typefirefox and press enter. Firefox will get open.

Toolbar Navigation

Alt+D or Ctrl+L = select the address bar type and go
Ctrl+K = select search bar in Firefox just type and search
Backspace or Alt+ left arrow = Back
Shift+Backspace or Alt+ Right arrow = Forward
Ctrl+up or down arrow = Change search engine ( this option would work after highlighting search engine option so before changing search engine please press Ctrl+k).
Up and down reflect next and previous.
Alt+Enter = open search in new tab.

Add com,org,net
I am too lazy to type full url like www.xyz.com so I just type xyz and I press ctrl+enter it takes me to www.xyz.com, we can use the same for .net and org domain also.
Ctrl+enter=.com
Shift+enter=.net
Ctrl+shift+enter=.org

Cannot get Ctrl+W to work on Adobe Reader within Firefox 3. Get message from Adobe Reader "Action cannot be performed from within an external window". Used to work in FF2 and AR8. Any suggestions? - Pls e--mail to tecsi@(kill-this)pacbell.net
