Create Safari-like Bookmark Toolbar shortcuts in Firefox
Authored by: dogen on Mar 14, '09 01:10:36PM

Simple workaround for Firefox 3.0.7 (and possibly others):

1. Under Bookmarks, choose Organize Bookmarks.
2. Select the Bookmarks Toolbar, then select a bookmark living there.
3. Click More on the lower pane so that you can see the Keyword field.
4. Type in a shortcut for the link. E.g., if you use Cmd-1 in Safari for Google News, type the number 1 into the field.
5. Type Cmd-l (that's an L) to highlight the location (address) field, then type 1 and press Enter. You'll go to Google News.

It's slightly more cumbersome than Safari's method—three keystrokes instead of one—but none of it requires a mouse, it's nearly as fast, and the number of shortcut keywords is seemingly unlimited. No third-party apps or extra profiles required.
