With the release of Firefox 3, I thought I would share my top ten Firefox shortcuts. So without further ado, here they are:

  1. ⌘ + l = focus address bar
  2. ⌘ + d = bookmark current page
  3. ⌘ + k = focus google search bar
  4. ⌘ + f = find
  5. ⌘ + g = find next
  6. ⌘ + t = new tab
  7. ⌘ + w = close current tab
  8. ⌘ + shift + t = reopen accidentally closed tab (Best one ever!)
  9. crtl + tab = tab through tabs
  10. crtl + shift + tab = tab backwards through tabs

Bonus for Delicious Extension users:

⌘ + Shift + . = pulls delicious page if you have delicious firefox extension installed

  1. How could you forget apple+1-8 to switch between tabs!? So much handier than ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab.

  2. Let’s not get started on the “HOW COULD YOU FORGET XYZ! IT’S THE GREATEST THING EVER THIS LIST IS STUPID!” comments.

    This is a list of Jenny’s top 10 firefox shortcuts…not the world’s top 10 firefox shortcuts.

  3. Awesome, I didn’t know there was a shortcut for reopening the last closed tab!

  4. Josh,

    I tried XYZ and nothing happened. Am I supposed to press them all at once or X, then Y, then Z?

    TIA

  5. @macFanDave: Were you yodeling when you pressed them? If not…there’s your problem.

  6. Thanks, Josh, that was AMAZING!

    I can’t describe what happened — you just have to see it for yourself.

    I don’t know how I lived without that feature. I found the key to be that you can’t be shy when you are yodeling — you really have to belt it out!

    Don’t worry about your co-workers or family staring at you, it’s worth it!

  7. I have a faster shortcut for the first one: F6 (at least in Windows) focuses the address bar. Try it and see if it works in OSX too

  8. What about WINDOWS?

  9. Also, if you hit alt+f4 on a windows machine you get instant downloads.
