Damn, I didn't know more than half of this stuff.
I only knew about number 3 and 9, Firefox is awesome.
NICE, this is very useful
OOOoooOOOoooOOOoooh thanks. I would give you two good ratings if i could. This was very good.
=best browser actually.
I personally can't function without Ctrl+T, and the mouse gesture extension.
I only knew about 2 of those. A lot of those are pretty useful.
nice boobs ahaha :)
she actually looks pretty ugly, which is probably why her eyes are cropped. blond hair does not make one hot.
will come in handy after I...look at Cat pics...
sometimes when I look at...."cat pics" I end up deleting my entire history. Good tip. P.S. Now noone will know I was looking at CATS!
...stories about the browser are always appreciated because it seems the only picture that represents it is of a girl with a nice rack!
makes me love firefox even more.
i have a problem opening a link. I got this message: "Error establishing a database connection"
Aww damn! 500 Server Error :(
"500 internal service error"... damnit.
Its back up btw if any of you havnt seen it yet.
As my search for methods to increase my browsing productivity continues, I have come across some excellent keyboard shortcuts for Firefox (my preferred browser) which I will discuss here . I am sure you’ll benefit from it if you use Firefox as your browser . 1: Automatically complete .org and .net addresses Yes, we know that if we type ‘google’ in the address bar and press Ctrl+Enter it directly goes to www.google.com . But what about .org and .net addresses? . In Firefox, Shift+Enter takes you to .net and Ctrl+Shift+Enter takes you to .org addresses automatically . So if you wanna go to Problogger , just type the word in firefox address bar and press Shift+Enter . 2: Alt + D You can use this to navigate directly to the browser address bar of firefox. Very useful. 3: Ctrl+T and Ctrl+Shift+T Ctrl+T helps you to open a new tab and Ctrl+Shift+T reopens the last closed tab. This comes quite handy in case you accidently close a tab. Another way to do this would be go to History -> Recently closed tabs. 4: Alt+Enter This can be an extremely useful shortcut. It automatically opens a website in another tab when you highlight it in the autocomplete list. For example you want to go to Facebook and you start typing www.face…, in the address bar and it starts showing the list below. You just need to use the down arrow key to highlight the selection (facebook.com in this case ) and press Alt+Enter so that it opens in a new tab. 5: Use of Delete Key The Delete key can be pretty useful because it helps you delete specific addresses in browser history or autocomplete forms. For example in the diagram below, when I type ‘a’ in google search I get 3 entries . If I want to delete the 2nd entry from autocomplete history , I’ll just point to it and press Delete key . Simple,isn’t it . use of delete key 6: Ctrl+Tab Ctrl+tab helps you to navigate between different firefox tabs quite easily. 7: Ctrl+[1,2….9] Ctrl+tab can help you navigate alternate tabs but if you are a heavy tab user like me and want to go to a specific tab then just use Ctrl+corresponding tab number. Ex:To go to the 3rd tab use Ctrl+3 . 8: Spacebar and Shift+Spacebar OR PageDown and PageUp Spacebar or PageDown key scrolls down the webpage you’re on and Shift+Spacebar or PageUp scrolls up the webpage you’re on . 9: The Middle Mouse Button This is not a keyboard shortcut but it is an excellent shortcut . Just point to a link anywhere on a webpage and press the middle mouse(scroll) button . It opens the page in a new tab . I hope these shortcuts will enhance your browsing productivity with Firefox . Do you know about other interesting shortcuts which I may have missed ?
although I new a majority of them, there are some very useful shortcuts in there. The are also some very good shortcuts in the comments of that page.
That was actually genuinely useful. Very good.
That was a misleading picture :) good shortcuts tho
Anyone knows the babe in the pic?
